The Studebaker family has an amazing legacy in South Bend. This is an incredibly extensive museum so plan to spend several hours. Even for someone who is not a car fanatic, you will enjoy this museum. Their collection is outstanding.

Even though we live close to the museum, this was our first visit. It won't be our last. A great history and automotive collection in the heart of South Bend. I would highly recommend this to someone looking for 2 to 4 hours to spend.

The Studebaker has been around for a 100 years before style changes and economics drove them out of business. This museum is a wonderful place to enjoy a day here. You cannot rush your visit here. Lots of history on review.
