  I went there about 18-20 years ago, I was sent to South Bend for 2 
weeks and on the weekend I was bored and drove up to the ACD, I really 
loved it but I had not planned on going there so  I got there near 
closing time, luckily they let me be the last out of the building so I 
got about an hour to look around.  I was really impressed, especially 
with the full size (or was it 3/4 size?) clay model and all the offices 
showing how they worked, etc. I hope that is still there and did not get 
removed to add more cars.

   Then by pure luck a month later I was sent back to South Bend, this 
time I planned on being at the ACD at opening time on Saturday AND I was 
still there at closing time!  One of the curators came by mid-afternoon 
and asked me how I was doing because he had noticed I had been there all 
day, I ended up with a tour of non-public areas and saw some of their 
stuff that they don't exhibit, I really loved it.  GREAT auto museum and 
one that should be on everyones bucket list.
