Located in park north of downtown Indianapolis this museum is quite large, modern and has a good collection. Free admission. One of the nice things, which is not common at many other museums, is that in addition to the title and artist information, each work on display has a paragraph or two of description. This is really helpful and puts... More

Excellent collection on the grounds of the former Lilly estate. Makes for a nice afternoon. Kids don't do so well there. They tend to get bored.

The special exhibit of the Prohibition was fantastic. The entire museum is worth a visit. Great background information on Indiana's great history.

The Indianapolis Museum of Art is enormous! It's so full of wonderful art and so many different kinds. Be sure to wear your comfy shoes and plan to be on your feet for most of the day. Art is indoors and out. I believe it would take more than one day to see everything.

OK, so Indianapolis doesn't seem like a place to go to for a great art museum ... how wrong you would be if you made that assumption. Set in wonderful gardens, the museum is free to enter and full of the most beautiful art. Airy galleries full of the inspiration and history. Make sure you go!

A world class museum with a vast array of different art forms. When I come, I spend hours just browsing the galleries amazed at all the beautiful pieces acquired by the IMA. I plan on spending many more afternoons here in the future.

Great art museum with paintings from every period and small signs next to each to explain the artist and the painting. Was only able to stay for 3 hours, so we missed the second and third floors, along with the gardens. Unfortunately, they're closed on Monday, so we couldn't go back for the rest of the exhibits.
