The Studebaker National Museum is a large collection of wagons and automobiles from the 150 year production history of the Studebaker company. The museum began as a collection of wagons and automobiles produced by Studebaker, including the presidential carriages of Lincoln, McKinley, Harrison and Grant. The company donated the collection to the city of South Bend in 1966. The collection was housed in various locations from the Century Center to its current location in downtown South Bend adjacent to the Northern Indiana Center for History. The two museums share one campus, and together form The Museums at Washington and Chapin. The former South Bend mansion of Clement Studebaker, named Tippecanoe Place, is now a restaurant.

The South Bend Museum of Art is located in the Century Center in downtown South Bend. The Museum was opened to the public in March 1996, and features a variety of artists from South Bend and the Michiana region. Currently, over 850 works are featured in the permanent collection. The museum also offers several classes and workshops for adults and children.

The Fischoff National Chamber Music Association, sponsor of the world's largest chamber music competition, was founded in South Bend in 1973. The annual Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition is held on the campus of the University of Notre Dame.

The South Bend Civic Theatre was founded in 1957. For many years it was located at The Firehouse, 701 Portage Avenue. In 2007, a new theatre opened at 403 N. Main Street, in what was formerly the Scottish Rite Building. It includes a 209-seat main-stage auditorium and a 90-seat "black-box" studio theatre. The South Bend Civic produces more than a dozen plays per year, including several productions in its Family Series.
