This was a neat museum that made for a nice day trip. We were in town during race weekend and wanted to take in the downtown Indy sights and ended up here. For those who like museums, it's a must see.

A really wonderful museum about Native Americans and their culture. Offering many artifacts, photographs and information about the numerous Native Americans that inhabited Indiana. Additionally, a entertaining display of film history of Western films with many artifacts and memorabilia from Western films.

The memorabilia from actors in old Westerns was phenomenal. The exhibit lasts until Feb of 2019-try to get there. The museum is also a Native american Museum- very informative history with many things to look at.

This is an unusual museum, not too large to see it all at once, very accessible to kids and families, with a very fine cafe. The collection of Native American artifacts and contemporary art is outstanding.

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
