Studebaker National Museum Reopening Plan

Dear Supporters,

The Studebaker National Museum and The History Museum will reopen its doors to the public on Sunday, June 14, returning to our normal operating hours: 10am-5pm Mon-Sat; 12pm-5pm Sun.

New policies will be implemented to help protect our visitors and staff:

  • In accordance with Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb’s Executive Order, visitors will be required to wear masks when in the Museum. 
  • Visitors will be asked to practice social distancing and maintain six (6) feet between themselves and others.
  • Alcohol-based hand sanitizer will be available throughout the building.
  • The Museum may open with a reduced capacity limit depending on final guidance from the Governor and state health officials.
  • We ask visitors who are sick to stay home until symptoms resolve.

Other changes have been made throughout the Museum to enhance visitor safety.  Staff members will be required to wear masks in public areas. Sneeze guards have been installed at the Museum Store and Visitor Info. Desk. In the Store, surfaces will be sanitized between customers and enhanced cleaning procedures will be used throughout the Museum.

Unfortunately, until further notice, the Studebaker Service Center and Photo Car will be closed. Touchscreens and tactile exhibits have been temporarily removed from the galleries. We look forward to returning these as soon as possible.

The Museum Campus will begin scheduling self-guided group tours on June 29. For visitors who wish to include the Oliver Mansion in their visit, limited walk-in tours are expected to resume on June 29.  The Museums expect to resume guided group tours on August 1.

Please reach out to the Museum at (574) 235-9714 if you have any questions about how these changes may impact your visit.  We will provide any additional updates on our websiteFacebookTwitter, and Instagram pages.
