Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum
Presents Living History Night
(AUBURN) – The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum is excited to invite visitors to interact with history during its “Living History Night” on Friday, April 11, 2014 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.
Actors depicting E.L. Cord, Alan Leamy, sales associates, secretaries, and laborers will be present for visitors to talk with, interact with and learn from. “This event idea came from a brainstorming session with staff,” said Aaron Warkentin, curator of the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum. “The entire staff is passionate about the Museum, its mission, and its educational programs. This event is just one more way that we can share our passion for this history with the public.”
Visitors will have the opportunity to work with a salesman to place an order for an automobile, just as they would have between 1930 and 1936 at one of Auburn Automobile Company’s official dealerships worldwide. “The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum is the only museum in the world where visitors can walk the same hallways and climb the same stairs as the people who created the history,” Kendra Klink, chief operating officer stated. “During this special event, visitors can not only experience those things, but they can also find out what it might have been like to interact with the President of the Auburn Automobile Company, an acclaimed automobile designer, the secretaries who kept the company running smoothly, the salesmen who sold the automobiles, and the laborers who used their hands to craft the beautiful works of art the Museum has the privilege of sharing 362 days a year.”
This family-friendly event is free with admission. Come and experience the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum like you never have before!
