About the Space
Representing the idea behind Art-Deco, the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum was built in 1930. The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum has been the host to some of the most upscale events that include quite an elaborate resume of special guests including Jay Leno, Dan Aykroyd, Ed Herrmann, and Chuck Surack, founder and CEO of Sweetwater! The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum is by far the most beautiful and mesmerizing place in the state of Indiana to host an unforgettable and memorable occasion!
The beautifully well-kept showroom, the spacious banquet facility, and the newly constructed Education & Exhibit Plaza are a few of the designated areas for special events held at the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum. Many of the suggested event spaces have been upgraded to host some of the most upscale events in various arrangements. The Museum is made up of two buildings which include the original showroom and administrative offices on the large acres of beautiful land. Located right on South Wayne Street allows the Education & Exhibit Plaza to be the attractive gateway to Auburn, Indiana from the South.
The Auburn Automotive Heritage obtained ownership of the former Auburn Automobile Company building, currently known as the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum in July of 1974. While the community wanted wholeheartedly to preserve history, they bought this beautiful estate to share with the community.
