“Gorgeous facility and great art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2012

You have to give the Eiteljorg props, the building is just a signature piece for Indianapolis, really beautiful. The art is western as much as Indian, and not much emphasis on local. But there are many gorgeous pieces displayed in awesome settings. I like the gift shop, can find some good prices on real indigenous art. Cafe been kinda hit or miss for lunch.

“Well-presented collection of American Indian artifacts in a beautiful and and unique building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

This American Indian Museum is in a surprising location in downtown Indianapolis. Allow time to enjoy the building inside and out as well as the unique collection. Don't forget the tasteful gift shop

“Loved it!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

The Eiteljorg Museum was well worth the visit. It's beautiful museum and gallery of Native American Indian art, clothing and history. We visited all the gallery's, ate a fantastic lunch in the cafe, and shopped in the gift shop. I would enjoy a repeat visit to this museum. It was also an excellent value for the admission price.

“A great break from the Superbowl Frenzy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2012

Stopped by on a rainy Saturday morning during Superbowl weekend. It was a true treat - the art was outstanding and the architecture just as fantastic. I truly enjoyed the exhibit from the museum's current fellows and the child in me came out in the basement exhibit for kids. This should be a part of any itinerary to Indianapolis.
