  • This was our first time to attend the Indian Market and Festival on June 25. It was so enjoyable. The vendors had beautiful pieces of their art work displayed, were friendly and informative. The highlight for us was the Indian hoop dancer! Please invite him to perform again. He was wonderful!
  • Perfect 2-hour museum experience. Neat mix of wild west and native art. Exceptionally friendly staff were unafraid to offer info and engage with visitors. $13 seemed steep, but the experience was great and no regrets.
  • This place is beautiful inside and out..I chevjed out the Qwest forcthexWest exhibit..it was astonishing...if you love Western and American Indian Art..you will find this place informative..visually stimulating and gorgeous!!!
  • Amazing collection! Better collection than the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian on display! Also, they offer military and student discounts. Would recommend to anyone visiting Indianapolis.
  • Fun place when they host events to take the kids. Plenty of activities. The cafe was tasty, and the staff was all helpful to us. The place is well run.
