It seems a strange place to have a museum of Western art, but here you have it. The Eiteljorg museum has a little bit of everything including a special "Jingle Rails" exhibit at Christmas time. From the moment you enter the museum through massive doors...More

Visited in December with friends from work. Jingle Rails is not to be missed. The exhibit is open from November until January, but it is fantastic. Other exhibits are interesting and the gift shop is fun!

We visited the Eiteljorg Museum for the first time earlier this month, primarily to see the the holiday trains exhibit, since we have enjoyed the similar exhibit by the same people done at New York Botanical Gardens. The trains were nice, but not as impressive...More

I enjoyed the E Museum and look forward to returning without a child. I took my 7 year old grandson who is usually up for anything. Sigh. Unfortunately he was completely bored with this museum. I think the museum offers something for very young kids...More

Jingle Rails is one of the most interesting exhibits at the Eiteljorg. Although it is usually only at the museum from mid November thru mid January, it is well worth taking the trip. Amazing how the national parks are made completely with natural materials, and...More

Very enjoyable display of the G scale railway. Beautiful job arranging the trains and very interesting subject matters. Well worth the price of admission. We also visited the lower level with a display of the northwest territories. Fun place for children.

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
