The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art located at 500 W. Washington St., Indianapolis, opened June 24, 1989. Harrison Eiteljorg (l903-1997), an Indianapolis businessman and philanthropist, worked with officials of the city of Indianapolis and of Lilly Endowment Inc. to build a museum to house his collection of Native American objects and Western paintings and sculptures. To his collection were added the holdings of the now-defunct Museum of Indian Heritage. The Eiteljorg Museum is the only museum in the Midwest to combine Western art and Native American art and artifacts. General admission charged. Parking is free for Eiteljorg Museum visitors at the White River State Park garage.
The Eiteljorg Museum is part of White River State Park along Central Canal. Other attractions are the Indianapolis Zoo, White River Gardens, Victory Field, the IMAX Theater, the Congressional Medal of Honor Memorial, the NCAA Hall of Champions, the National Institute for Fitness and Sport, and Military Park.
Please see the Museum's website for hours and admission fees.
