I’m not much of a gearhead myself but I love looking at old cars. Next time I’m in the area, I’m definitely going to make a stop at the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum located in Auburn, Indiana (about 20 miles north of Fort Wayne).
Auburn Cord is dedicated to the history of Automobiles and is home to nearly 120 classic automobiles. The museum, recently named one of the Top 10 Gearhead destinations in the country by MSNBC celebrates Indiana’s rich automotive heritage.
A tourist attraction in itself is the building that houses the museum. The Old Auburn Automobile Company building is a registered National Historic Landmark and harkens back to the golden age of automobile production in Indiana.
Some of the Cars on Display:
- Rolls Royce
- Mercedes Benz
- And more!
It makes a great family destination, it’s affordable and what little boy doesn’t like cars? They have an excellent family rate of $25 – gets the whole family in for one low price. Adults are $10. Children are $6. There are Docent led tours of the collection, which sounds like a lot of fun.
The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum is open 7 days a week from 9 to 5. For more information and to plan your visit, check out the website here.
