Wow, what a gem! This museum is smaller, not overwhelming, clean, and unique. Located right across from the JW Marriott, it took me about 3 hours to go through. You can go at your own pace. The day I went it was very slow, so...More

You can go at your own leisure. Absolutely stunning paintings of the Old West & Native Americans. Felt inspired & back to nature after leaving!

We went to see the Jingle Rails display and were very glad we did. It was amazing and our 9 and 11 year old girls enjoyed it as much as the adults. The rest of the museum was also very interesting and well worth the...More

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
