Museum Elevator Currently Inoperable:We apologize for the inconvenience and ask that you please call ahead of time to check on repair status if you need the elevator.


We invite you to be a part of the museum experience by attending our events and programs or hosting your own special event at this exclusive location! There are many ways to get involved with the museum whether you are a visitor, member, student, researcher, bride and groom, event attendee, or just coming along for the ride!

The museum is located in the corporate headquarters of the original Auburn Automobile Company, so museum visitors experience first-hand where Auburns, Cords, and Duesenbergs were first designed, engineered, tested, displayed, and marketed. The museum houses 16 showrooms or galleries, including the Original Company Showroom, and other studios and offices that have been restored to their original period at the Auburn Automobile Company in the 1930s. The fact that these cars are exhibited where they were actually designed and engineered puts the museum in an historical context that is unique in all of America.

Museum Programs

The museum provides innovative exhibits and educational programs, grounded in scholarly research, to inform a diverse audience representing all 50 states and over 40 countries annually of our nation's automotive heritage using the Auburn Automobile Company, Duesenberg, Inc., and the Cord Corporation as a microcosm of the industry.

This museum, both a National Historic Landmark and an Accredited institution of the American Alliance of Museums, works hard to create educational programs and events that are tailored to the multiple types of learners in the world. Our mission is to provide programs and content that interprets and educates the public.
