We welcome adult and student tours. Reservations can be made for guides and special tours by contacting the museum three weeks in advance of your visit. When you take a tour, you’ll gain a deeper knowledge of Western and Native American cultures. Experiences for many are best when shared with others, so make your next visit a group visit.
Group rates are available for general admission but do not apply for special events. The rates below are for groups or 10 or more:
Van and car parking is free for all museum patrons in the White River State Park underground parking garage while spaces last. Bus or motorcoach transportation can drop attendees off at the entrance and park nearby in the White River State Park south lot.
Student tours are perfect for educating and entertaining students. Tours include highlights of the museum and educators can find resources for creating curriculum to correlate with their visit.
Visiting the museum opens your mind to new ideas and incredible stories. We offer scout patches for those who learn about Western and Native American art and artifacts. As you learn, you can earn a badge for the knowledge you gain.
This patch is earned by the completion of a Treasure Hunt in our permanent galleries. You and your group can request your treasure hunt at the admission desk.
Earn this patch by visiting and participating in special events like a Village Voices performance and the artists in residents exhibit. Learn more at the admission desk.
The museum is full of art and artifacts with long histories and stories. Visit the museum for Juneteenth on June 16th to earn this patch from the admissions desk.
The culture patch can be earned through events like artists in residents, Day of the Dead, and our Thanksgiving weekend programming.
One of our favorite events of the year, the Indian Market and Festival offers the opportunity to earn a patch by learning about traditions and artwork.
This patch is available during our Jingle Rails exhibit. After you tour the railroad attraction, you can earn your patch from the admissions desk.
