From the Executive Director & CEO

“The proportion and lines of the Cord come nearer expressing the beauty of both science and logic than any car I have ever seen.” - Frank Lloyd Wright

A very prominent and forward-thinking architect, Frank Lloyd Wright’s admiration of the Cord stands as a testament to the vehicles that were conceived, designed, engineered, built, marketed, and exported from this National Historic Landmark treasure that is now our museum.  The Art Deco architecture and styling of the building both speak to dominant, unimpeded forward motion and future thinking, which represents the status of the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum.

The vision for the future will set the stage for new exhibits, programs, tours, events, partnerships, and ways to experience and to be a part of the Museum.  As the stewards of such a rich and diverse collection, we look forward to expanding upon the history and heritage we preserve. This includes additional emphasis on our historic building, Art Deco architecture, design and engineering, art, automobiles, history, and the legacies of the men and women who shaped the past.

Be sure to stay on the lookout for all of the new ways to engage by staying up-to-date with our social media, e-mail newsletters, and our website.

We look forward to seeing you at the museum and hope you share in our excitement for the museum’s future and all that it will bring to the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum.
