We saw the Henry Ford museum a few months ago - and several car museums in Italy. This is well worth the trip - ask for AAA and over 60 discounts.

Three floors to see - not clear, so don’t miss all three. Never knew Studebaker history, nor how they were the only wagon manufacturer to make the change to horseless carriages. We knew electric vehicles were ahead initially, but gasoline engines took over when electric starters & electric headlights came in on Cadillacs.

The first major non - family CEO took the company to new highs, then pretty much lost it all in the depression (and killed himself). Studebaker stuttered along until 1966 or so in Canada.

I took my father, who came from abroad, t see this museum, because he loves cars. The Studebaker cars were prestige cars in my birth country in South America. We were surprised that the museum was so much more than cars. It was also a fantastic experience of the history of South bend within impactful events in the US. Were were charmed and impressed. This is highly recommended.

Great place and fleet at the museum. Very well kept and big enough for a nice day tour. There is a complete collection of Studebacker cars and a some relevant cars for the history of automobiles. The museum staff is very friendly and the location is amazing. It is possible to cruise into the old Studebacker factory grounds what is also awesome to see. The scale of the factory grounds is overwelming.

Even if I didn't see an automobile, the collection and history of the Studebaker Bros. wagons would have made this visit worthwhile. There is a display of Presidential Carriages that is outstanding, including the carriage Mr Lincoln rode to Ford's Theater. Historical and well presented, the wagon collection is outstanding. Their automobile collection is just as awing. Forward thinking designs jump out at you. The breadth of the production of the brothers in South Bend is staggering, from horse drawn to autos to military vehicles. I loved this museum, and I received a senior discount on entry.

definitely worth going . clean, friendly people, history lesson. Not overwhelming big where by the time you’re done you forget what you saw.
at one point studebaker was largest horse drawn vehicle company in world.
About 2 minutes from downtown and 5 minutes from toll road interchange. Good restaurants in area, better than stoping at fast food places.
If you read every sign slowly , 2 hours is plenty.

We visited the museum and were very impressed with the displays of all the cars. We really enjoyed how they were displayed. Only criticism is that a movie explaining the Studebaker story would have added to our experience
