Be a part of the 45th anniversary celebration of one of the most unique museums in the world on August 29th!
It was on July 6th, 1974 that the museum completed its restoration and opened to the public with 24 borrowed automobiles on exhibit. For an admission price of $1.50, astonished visitors experienced the splendor of the 12,000-square-foot Showroom in its original appearance. Accessible once again was a magnificent example of Art Deco architecture, glorifying America’s zenith of machine-age style.
To celebrate this momentous occasion, the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum is celebrating its 45-year history with fun, festivities, and fanfare at our event “Cheers to 45 Years!” on Thursday, August 29th at 6pm.
“Cheers to 45 Years!” is a must-attend event with live music by the Farm Land Jazz Band, hors d’oeuvres in the Auburn Automobile Company’s original Art Deco Showroom, and drawings and prizes all followed by a delicious dinner, open bar, entertainment, paddle raise, and silent/live auctions with one of a kind items.
