Went to a benefit here so didn't see a lot of the place, but have always heard amazing things about it.
First, dont pay for parking. There are plenty of free parking spaces inside the museum. Everything else, except a few exhibits, are also free so enjoy! And dont forget to leave a monetary contribuition so it remains free as it should be!!
I was very pleasantly surprised by the IMA. Being Indianapolis, I wasn't expecting a lot of work from famous artists, but I was mistaken. Monet, Van Gogh, Mattisse, and more. Huge collections from a diverse range of artists. The museum grounds are another exhibit entirely. All for just the price of parking. Well worth it!
Very insightful exhibit about one of our favorite artists, we learned so much what inspired his creativity and about the tremendous depth of his knowledge of many mediums. Thank you to Baltimore for sharing this great exhibit!

Admission is free except for certain exhibits and you can park for... More
My husband and I visited art museums all over the world and the Indianapolis Museum of Art can more than hold its own with the best of them. There is art for every taste, whether it be a Matisse or a Calder or a piece of ancient Greek pottery. The building itself it striking, and we like that there's always... More
Gorgeous facility, beautiful building. Parking was ample and nearby. Enjoyed the galleries and displays we had a chance to see in our short visit.
