I have been to western art museums in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. This is the Best! If I lived in Indiana I would become a member. Beautiful displays of art and history. This place is a real treasure.

I like that the exhibits showed a less unbiased history of how the "visitors" ravaged the land. It showed the culture and even had an interactive section for kids and adults alike.

Nice little gem, with a wonderful sculpture of deer running through the fountain out front, great gift shop with Native American made jewelry and other arty pieces for your home, at all prices. Great look at the west through art in paintings, sculptures and artifacts. Nice ode to the Grand Canyon with huge pieces making you feel like you are... More

The limited time of the Grand Canyon exhibit gave the opportunity to take advantage of visiting the museum for the first time. The Native American exhibits and culture that are the permanent fixtures of the museum are something everyone should visit given the chance.

This museum has a very impressive collection of western art by renowned and not so renowned artists. The facility is top notch, if a little chilly. Through August 7, they have a Grand Canyon exhibit with artifacts and art from the 1890s through the present day, including films from the last century. Tickets are $13 for adults, $11 for seniors,... More

This is a gem of a museum. I really enjoyed the beautiful paintings throughout the building. The native American displays included artifacts that I have never seen before. Take time to stop at this first rate museum.

Located on the Canal, and on the side of the JW Marriott. The museum was very interesting as it displayed some of Indianapolis culture. Included in the museum is an Imax theatre which was very convenient. We saw the new Independence day movie which was beautiful.

There was plenty to see, a lot of beautiful art and handcrafted items. There is plenty of history and information about various Native American tribes.
