Special Weekend Activities At Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum

The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum is excited to announce its monthly program, “If These Cars Could Talk.” Visitors will have the opportunity to meet one automobile from the Museum’s collection and get to know it a little more in-depth with a live car-side presentation.

“Visitors will be given a look into one of the premiere Indiana-built automobiles built during an already crowded and competitive Indiana market, the 1915 Westcott Model 42,” said Sam Grate, registrar of the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum. The Westcott was donated by Robert C. Lewis of Rocky River, Ohio. This was the last model year built in Indianapolis, Indiana before moving to Springfield, Illinois.

Special presentations will take place at 11:00 am and 3:00 pm on Saturday, October 10, 2015.

The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum is also offering free admission to DeKalb County residents on the second Sunday of every month.

Gather your family and visit the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum on Sunday, October 11, 2015 from 10 am to 5 pm. This is a great opportunity to spend time designing your own automobile in the fully-equipped Design Studio. Post your drawings on the wall for others to see your artistic ability or take them with you!
