I attended a private event at the museum as part of a convention I was attending at the nearby JW Marriott and was thoroughly impressed. The museum itself was beautiful inside, but the surrounding gardens were just as breathtaking. It's a great place to host private parties and we even had gondolas that took us up and down the canal... More

This museum is a personal favorite. Fantastic collection of native art from around the world. We were particularly interested in the George Morrison exhibit that was on while we were there.

We really enjoyed seeing the Native American and western art of artists such as Andy Warhol, Georgia O'Keeffe, Frederic Remington. There were paintings and artifacts of the Delaware, Miami, and Potawatomi Indians. They are in partnership with the Smithsonian. There's also a gift shop where you can purchase jewelry, pottery, baskets, and paintings made by Native American artists; also books,... More

One of my all time favorite places in Indy. I love the west and the history of Native Americans. This is the place to go. The Gift Shop and the Café are top notch. If in Indy in June be sure to attend Indian Market hosted by the museum.

Reasonably priced and walking distance from the Circle (free parking if you drive though). Went here for an Ansel Adams exhibit, and ended up enjoying the rest of the museum as much. The focus is on Native American culture, so there was much for us to learn about. Well worth the time to go

While the focus is on Native American and Western art, I saw the Ansel Adams exhibit and several other smaller exhibits and I was thrilled. The Adams exhibit was my first visit and I went for that, but stayed all day enjoying every exhibit. I even ate in the restaurant where the food was very good and enjoyed the gift... More

Only went in for the cafeteria which was very busy for lunch. Food was delivered to the table after order was placed & this was much nicer & more efficient than going through a line. Food was very good & presented nicely. The museum itself looked interesting & would warrant another visit.
