Eiteljorg Museum

Nominated for: BEST Museum BEST Venue

Eiteljorg Museum 500 W Washington St Indianapolis IN (317) 636-9378

The Eiteljorg Museum is the only museum of its kind in the Midwest, and one of only two museums east of the Mississippi that showcase 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.

There aren't many western/native american art museums in the country, and it is amazing that we have one right here in Indy! SO much to see and love that you don't get to experience anywhere else!
