This was a wonderful time seeing art work about Native Americans. We had lunch at their Cafe, & that too was great. Located near the beautiful canals & downtown-across the street from the large new Marriott hotels. We will stay downtown our next visit.

I entered the Eiteljorg because its attractive architecture and location while walking the canal. It is not a focused museum but a collage of different exhibitions.Given its small size you may cover it without effort which will also mean that it may be considered overpriced.

The modern building is perfect for the beautiful art. We enjoyed the artwork. Went at the end of a busy day and were able to see it all in a couple of hours.

This is an interesting museum, with a great patio, and lovely location. I attended an evening wedding on a crisp windy early May evening. The patio setting near the river is a perfect setting. The reception dinner was inside. Staff was helpful and accommodating.

I will be staying at the Maldron Hotel this coming week. Does your hotel have plug in outlets for U. S. or do I need to buy a European plug in for my phone and camera battery charges?

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
