Location Information


The Studebaker National Museum is a state-of-the-art, 55,000-square-foot facility that opened in October 2005. The building has three levels and features fully climate-controlled galleries and storage facilities to ensure the best possible care for the Collection. The Studebaker National Museum was designed by South Bend’s own James Childs Architects and features several design elements from Studebaker’s factory buildings. It is home to roughly 120 vehicles spanning 150 years of automotive history that all took place right here in South Bend, Indiana. The museum is also home to one of the largest collections of Presidential Carriages in the country, including the carriage that carried President Lincoln to Ford's Theatre on the night of his assassination. Studebaker National Museum is adjacent to The History Museum.
