This was worth the price of admission just to see the western movie outfits and hats from some of my favorite movies. Beautiful exhibits and paintings also.

The wedding was here. The ceremony was outdoors, reception in side and then the dancing was outdoors under the "sails". We saw just a little of the museum. Great mix of Western and American Indian art.

A good museum that is preserving the history and the traditions of the Native Americans of Indiana and surrounding areas. Native art is also presented in several forms and from several periods.

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
