“Beautiful and informative”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We went to the Eiteljorg for the guitar exhibit, which runs through this summer and then stayed for the rest of the museum. Really beautiful artwork and a lovely gift shop. We immediately joined as members.

“Eiteljorg Museum Indianapolis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

The Eiteljorg Museum is a world class Native American museum in Indianapolis. The authentic architectural design and exhibits are exceptional. You can have lunch in their lovely cafe. It is not to be missed on a trip to downtown Inadianapolis.

“Varied, interesting collection.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

I'm not an expert on 'Western Art,' but there is a lot of variety here, and it's well presented. It's a interesting way to spend an hour or so, I'm sure more if you have more than a passing interest.

“Beautifully Presented”

This collection is carefully chosen and presented clearly. Not cluttered or overwhelming. The Eiteljorg is the perfect size, in a beautiful space. The cafe and shop were also delightful .

“Easterners will be impressed by West...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Coming from NYC, i had the Easterners skepticism that a midwest museum could be that good.. However, I was not disappointed. The paintings of the old West and native Americans are particularly poignant, and the handicrafts on the second floor: beading, carvings, etched plates, are exquisitely worked. I almost skipped the guitar exhibit, thinking it would be a waste of time, but that too was well presented. Lunch was pricey, 10-12 dollars, still, if you're in the mood, its good and filling. Nice bathrooms too!
