“Great if you love old cars!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

If you are a specific "restoration car nut", you will love this place. It is probably one of the best museums of antique Cord & Duesenberg vehicles anywhere in the world. Kind of an out of the way location in Auburn, IN... but a nice trip if you love antique cars.

“Cars, Cars and more cars”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Took my son here, he is acar guy. This place has more cars than you could imagine. And they are not just any old cars, well yes, they are old, but they are gorgeous. One of the high schools in the area hold their prom here and I can see why. It is a car showroom from back in the day (google it). Lot's of art decco in the building and in some of the car designs. There are cars everywhere. Upstairs, downstairs, over to the right, back in the left. This is a cool place.

“Must see for car fans 5 minutes off I-69 take a break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Very very nice car museum with a superb collection of 1930 era luxury cars (some worth 3.5 million today) with a nice historic mix of the very first autos from the late 1800's concept cars, micro cars from the 1950's. Admission is a bit steep at 10 dollars in my opinion. They have elevators to the second floor. Also they have a second museum behind the main museum at a separate admission price. Coffee and drinks are available and you can drink on the first floor while looking at the cars. Ask your kids to choose which one from the many great cars their they want to take home as a game Hard for them to choose but it keeps them busy.

“GEAR HEADS would love this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Lots of automotive history to see here. Stock cars and custom, Model-T's to Dukes of Hazzard, I work the dog show that is held in the same building, and am happy to be able to see all the cars and monster trucks that abide in the building. Don't miss it!

“Superb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

A beautiful building housing beautiful cars! What a treasure. If you have doubts, check out the pictures. Classic automobiles you won't find anywhere else. World class. You can cover it in an hour if you don't read all the informative plaques, (I travelled with those types before) but I think most people will want to spend much more time to really absorb these beautiful surroundings.
