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

Even if you know nothing about Studebakers, you'll find the displays interesting and informative. There are lots of wagons and buggies, most built by Studebaker. They have three presidential coaches, including the coach driven by Lincoln to the Ford theater.

My wife is a Studebaker so it was a fun stop. Very nice museum took about 2-2.5 hours to go through. Worth the cost. It was a great value.

First class modern display of Studebaker‘s history including cars and other products. Located in the same building as The History Museum and Oliver Mansion. See all three!

Great seeing this museum if you like old cars and Americana. The Midwest was an industrial powerhouse in the early 1900s. It’s sad to see what we’ve lost.
