Attraction Overview

The Eiteljorg Museum is the only museum of its kind in the Midwest, and one of only two museums east of the Mississippi that showcases both Native American and Western art, culture, and history!

The museum contains one of the best Native American and Western art collections in the world, including traditional and contemporary work by artists such as T.C. Cannon, N. C. Wyeth, Andy Warhol, Georgia O’Keeffe, Allan Houser, Frederic Remington, Charles Russell, and Kay WalkingStick.

The museum’s Mihtohseenionki (The People’s Place) gallery explores Indiana’s indigenous peoples — the Delaware, Miami, and Potawatomi Indians — through preserved rare objects, historical photos, interactive displays, and audiovisual technology.  Other galleries feature Native American art and artifacts from coast to coast, including pottery, basketry, woodcarvings, beadwork, and apparel.  The museum’s alliance partnership with the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) gives it invaluable access to the NMAI’s traveling exhibitions and collections.

The Sky City Café, a 90-seat casual-dining restaurant, serves dishes inspired by Western and Native American culture.  The museum also features the DeHaan Family Terrace, a beautiful garden space along the Indianapolis Historic Central Canal.
