It was a pleasant surprise to visit this museum. We did so as part of the Indian Market & Festival. One price got us in to both. Having visited and lived in the American Southwest, I can tell you this museum is not of the same caliber, but still very good for Indiana. The collection of art is relatively modern.... More

I am not normally much for museums that lean towards art. This was a great visit. Lots of interesting history with some absolutely phenomenal art work. Worth the time easily.

I don't know how comfortable I am with cultural artefacts being part of an "Art Museum". That aside, I think there is something for everyone. From fabulous visual artworks, cultural artefacts and the history of contact between Native American peoples and European Americans. The feature exhibition is about the discovery of gold. I was most interested in the parts about... More

In white river state park, the Eiteljorg is convenient to many down town attractions. The canal is on the back side and is very hipster. Excellent cafe. Exhibits are informative and engaging.

An excellent display of American Indian Art and History. My wife and I spent an afternoon enjoying what this museum has to offer. I was truly impressed because it compares well with the National Museum of the American Indian at the Smithsonian in Washington DC. If you enjoy the art and history of the native Americans, you will find the... More

Beautiful exhibits and art. The paintings and sculptures on display were beautiful and the admission is very affordable. The staff is also very friendly and the museum itself is right near the downtown.

This was my first visit to the museum, and it certainly will not be my last! I had plans of spending Saturday afternoon visiting the expositions inside the museum and attending the Indian Market on the grounds. Because of awful traffic and flooded roads coming from Chicago, we were not able to attend until Sunday morning, and only got to... More

This weekend was the annual Indian Market at the Eiteljorg Museum. My wife and I have been going to the market for a number of years now and truly enjoy the experience. There are a variety of artists at the event who bring their work. We have our favorites who we look forward to seeing their new works and perhaps... More

We have time for one museum during our visit to Indy and I'm glad we picked this one. it's a weird hodgepodge of Western Art and a summary of Native American craft and culture that apparently came from the collection of one man. Great collection of Remington bronzes and a few gems, including a couple of Georgia O'Keeffe. Especially enjoyed... More

Spent a good morning exploring the exhibits at the Eiteljorg museum. Really enjoyed the art as well as the architecture of the building itself. There were 2 school groups there when we visited, but the museum is expansive enough that we were able to explore quietly without being disturbed by the school groups.
