It is a perfect small art museum with some artifacts of Indian culture dating more than1000 years ago. Several very good paintings. Of course, it is not Art Institute in Chicago, but for South Bend this place is a must see. No entrance fee.

This is a fantastic venue with ever-changing displays. Underrated and not visited enough. Maybe this is good because when you visit, there is no crowd.
