“Lovely architecture and exhibits.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2012

Possibly one of the most unique museums in Indianapolis, this museum houses exhibits of Indian art as well as art made about and for those who love the west as well as the art of the west. Entrance fee but well worth it!

“Unique Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2012

Two museums in one, western art and Native American History. The first floor has a wide range of western art from Mr. Eiteljorg...very nice. Second floor was a jewel of Native American Indian history...Ohio, Indiana as well as the various other regions.

“Gorgeous facility and great art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

You have to give the Eiteljorg props, the building is just a signature piece for Indianapolis, really beautiful. The art is western as much as Indian, and not much emphasis on local. But there are many gorgeous pieces displayed in awesome settings. I like the gift shop, can find some good prices on real indigenous art. Cafe been kinda hit or miss for lunch.

“Well-presented collection of American Indian artifacts in a beautiful and and unique building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

This American Indian Museum is in a surprising location in downtown Indianapolis. Allow time to enjoy the building inside and out as well as the unique collection. Don't forget the tasteful gift shop
