  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Giant space but few artworks shown. We'd like to see more. Still worth the visit the quality of art here is brilliant. Worth to visit. Staff and volunteers are very friendly.
  • This is one of my favorite museums. I stop every time I travel through the area. Great volunteers and exhibits.
