Facility rentals at the Studebaker National Museum offer more than the usual “four walls and a chandelier:” We offer a cultural environment centered on the appreciation of South Bend’s history.

With 55,000 square feet of classic automobiles, exquisite historic vehicles, and interesting artifacts, we can transform a simple event to a memorable one.  Our Museum Board Room and the AM General Atrium are both available for rental for your next social or business event.

The Atrium is an open, welcoming space perfect for (but not limited to) receptions, anniversaries, parties, reunions, and social events.  The high ceiling and skylight mimic the ceilings of early automobile factories.

The Atrium is right beside the Main Floor Gallery and the Carmichael Bullet Nose Gallery, which features one of the museum’s cars on display on a spinning platform.

The Board Room is also available for rental.  Directly outside the second floor gallery, it is perfectly located for guests who wish to experience separation between business and pleasure while still reaping the benefits of both.

Whether you are hosting 20 people or 200, the Studebaker National Museum can accommodate your event.

Guests can enjoy the sophisticated atmosphere as they explore the galleries and enjoy our vast collection at no additional cost.  The museum also includes free parking for your guests and is handicap accessible.
