Museum of American Indians and Western Art – Virtual Tour

The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art houses a collection of visual arts by the indigenous peoples of the Americas, as well as Western American paintings and sculptures.

The museum exhibits a collection of traditional Western paintings and bronzes by American artists that specialized in depictions of the American Old West,  such as Frederic Remington (1861 – 1909) and Charles Russell (1864 – 1926).

There is also an extensive collection of paintings by New Mexico-associated painters, such as Ernest L. Blumenschein and Georgia O’Keeffe.

Two new galleries are dedicated to the museum’s extensive contemporary art collection, and the museum has continued to expand to include an education center, outdoor gardens, and event space.

The museum is part of Indianapolis’s White River State Park, which also houses the neighboring Indiana State Museum, the Indianapolis Zoo, the White River Gardens, NCAA Hall of Champions, Victory Field, and Military Park.
