“Great architecture, site; creative exhibits for tricky brand”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Wonderful Southwest architecture (possibly the only museum whose garage entrance is a high point, along with convenient parking). Easily reached at midpoint of city and adjacent to other attractions. Good core of standard Southwestern art and Native American origins complemented by innovative periodic exhibits. Well-catered order-at-counter restaurant, extensive gift shop.

“AWESOME!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Must go they have all types of art & it is laid out very nicely. I have been to this museum several times & take people there when they come from out-of-town to visit. A must see if you are in Indy.

“Our true americn Heritage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

seeing history, Indian history, the clothing they made, the food s they ate, how they hunter and survived is amazing. There is western artwork that feels like you could touch a horse they are so realistic and beautiful. Worth your time to visit the White River state park museums, this is one fo the best.

“A Full Day of Discovery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

This is a museum you can see if you get up when it opens and stay the entire day. The galleries are filled with interesting works ranging from painting to statues, well organized so you can do tours alone. It is a bit of walking but you can do it.

Don't forget the lower level designed for children even if you don't have any because it was still quite fun. The cafe is pricey but you can step out then come back in a bit later.
