On Thursday, November 11, in honor of Veterans Day, the Studebaker National Museum and The History Museum are offering free admission to all veterans and those currently serving in the Armed Forces and their families.
On display is Manufacturing Victory, a joint exhibit by the Studebaker National Museum and The History Museum, which celebrates the steadfast response of our region’s manufacturers to America’s call during times of military conflict. Artifacts include vehicles, munitions, textiles, jet engines, Studebaker’s horse-drawn army wagons and AM General’s iconic Humvee. Highlighting the ingenuity of generations of workers, service members, and business leaders, the exhibit chronicles the area’s long and rich history of defense production from 1853 to present day.
The Studebaker National Museum and The History Museum are located just eight blocks west of downtown South Bend. They are open Mon.-Sat., 10am-5pm, and Sun. Noon–5pm. Campus admission is $15 for adults, $12 for seniors over 60, and $8 for youth ages 6-18.
