News Release: During government shutdown, federal employees receive free admission at the Eiteljorg

INDIANAPOLIS – The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art is offering free admission to federal employees who have been affected by the federal government shutdown.

Federal government employees and their immediate family members can visit the Eiteljorg Museum at no charge by showing their federal employment ID at the museum admission desk. The Eiteljorg has taken this step in light of the financial hardship experienced by federal workers who have been furloughed and are receiving no pay or who are required to work without pay during the shutdown.

Free admission for those federal employees and families impacted by the shutdown will continue until the closure ends and the federal government is up and running again.

Now is a good time to visit the Eiteljorg Museum. Visitors can see the final weeks of the Hollywood Westerns exhibition The Reel West, which concludes Feb. 3, and enjoy the new exhibition in the renovated Western galleries, Attitudes: The West in American Art.

The Eiteljorg is open regular museum hours: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.

Not a federal employee? To purchase tickets online or learn about Eiteljorg exhibitions and programs and other types of ticket discounts, please visit the museum website, www.eiteljorg.org.
