Studebaker National Museum

The car museum is located in the middle of South Bend (there are plenty of signs to point you there) and is currently in the old Loewy design studio -- part of the old factory. It holds 150+ year old wagons, presidential vehicles, and various other artifacts of the company's history, as well as items from other South Bend manufacturers.

[ALC, 07/02/2002]

The museum moved into its own building in 2005, packed with three floors of exclusive Studebakerabilia.
