Eiteljorg Museum sets attendance record

The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art in downtown Indianapolis enjoyed a record year for attendance, the 25-year-old institution announced Wednesday.

The Eiteljorg drew 161,000 visitors in 2014, topping its former record of 141,000 in 2011.

The museum got a big boost from the five-month-long Ansel Adams exhibit, which attracted nearly 88,000 visitors, making it the Eiteljorg’s most-attended show ever.

The Eiteljorg hopes to build on that record in 2015 when it puts on “Gold! Riches and Ruin,” a show that looks at historic gold rushes in California, the Black Hills and the Yukon-Klondike. The interactive exhibit runs March 7 through Aug. 9.
