in Auburn, Indiana

More than 100 of the most beautiful classics are on display at the former headquarters of the Auburn Automobile Company in Auburn, Indiana.

Occupying a 1930 Art Deco building designed by A.M. Strauss, you can enjoy this unique collection of American pre-war classics in an appropriate setting.

Featuring the three great marques of the Golden Age of the automobile that have been manufactured in Auburn, the museum illustrates the motoring culture from its beginning in the last century, through the decades of this century.

The Auburn Automobile Company was founded in 1900.

Under the management of Errett Lobban Cord, the Duesenberg Automobile and Motors Company was purchased in 1926, and became part of the Auburn Group.

In 1929 the first Cord was introduced with the model L 29. This was also the first American front-wheel-drive production car.

Also in 1929 the Duesenberg Model J was introduced, one of the most famous and desired cars of all time.

1936 brought the Cord 810 with front-wheel-drive and a revolutionary design.

The museum is open Monday through Friday, from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm, and 10am - 5pm on Saturday and Sunday (closed Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day). Call the museum for admission rates and parking information at (260)-925-1444, or go to:
