This was a great museum to visit for a couple hours. Filled with Native American and Western culture exhibits there is a lot to enjoy. It is a little pricey, but I think it is still worth it. The gift shop is also wonderful and sells a lot of merchandise from Native American Tribes.

This is a southwest museum that one would expect to find in Wyoming, Arizona or New Mexico. The exhibitions are always something that one would never see around this part of the country and very unique. It is a jewel of the midwest and the indian and western art is superb. The gift shop is also very complete with interesting... More

An incredible collection of American Indian artifacts and art works beautifully displayed. If you have ever been interested in the history of the original settlers of America, this is a must visit place.

We love going at least once a year. It's great indoor adventure for the grandchildren in the cold winter months. Very educational, displays are well described!

Just okay for our family with teens. Stopped by for the Christmas train display that was nice but the rest was just okay. The teens got boarded quickly.

This is a gorgeous museum, inside and out. Situated on the city canal, there are outdoor activities during the summer. The gift shop is a great destination for special event gifts.

This is an outstanding museum for Native American history. The exhibits change so there is always something new to see. My small grandchildren love the basement area with hands on exhibits. They enjoy the rest of the museum as well. The Jingle Rails train exhibit is surely one of their favorites, and mine. The attention to detail and the engineering... More

This is one of the top three American Indian and Old West museums in the U.S. The architecture of the building as you approach is sandstone and reminds one of the pueblos. Parking is in an underground garage shared with the Indiana State Museum. The building is large, housing a permanent display that takes you from Eastern native Americans all... More

Interesting rotating exhibits. I wish however that they had a larger permanent Native American exhibit. The festival in June is fun.
