I enjoyed the western art and Indian artifacts. The history of local tribes like the Miami is featured. This quality, regional museum is well worth a few hours.

This is a relatively new addition to the wonderful museums in and around Indianapolis. The art and history pieces are stunningly lifelike, beautiful.

It was a little small. Artwork was beautiful tons of good historical context listed underneath. I was shocked at how much gold items they were donated. The cafe was overpriced. Basement is an area for kids, I may bring my niece. It was nice having videos with native american commentators. They had actual tepees to walk in. Equipment used by... More

Terrific (and varied) collection in an architecturally-significant building. Save time for lunch or a snack in the cafe and don't miss the gift shop (I only wish they had more postcards of the collection for sale).

The museum is very clean and easy to get to. great parking. We were there for the special train exhibit at Christmas. LOVED it. Was there with my 2 year old grandson and even though the exhibits were over his head, he still had a great time. Very nice area for small children. Would most definitely go again.
