From the outdoor sculpture of running deer to the choice of stone for the construction, the Eiteljorg was thoughtfully and artistically designed. The collection varies from paintings of the West to examples of historical costumes and fine baskets; currently an exhibit of cowboy films features...More

This is another treasure in Indianapolis - definitely go! Use underground parking or use Spothero app to find cheap parking near wherever else you're going that day.

Several attractions are shut down during the summer of 2018, so I'd recommend waiting until this place is fully operational. There were a couple of areas that were mildly interesting, but overall I'd describe the Eiteljorg as an unremarkable experience.

The real exhibit is on the second floor. After going upstairs, turn right under the "Mihtohseenionki" sign and learn about the history of tribes that lived - and in some cases still live - in Indiana. It is sad how the Native Americans/First Nations were...More

You have asked your question in the wrong section. This museum is in Indianapolis and you are asking for a hotel in Dublin!?!?! There isn't a Maldron Hotel in Indy
