IMA is a nice museum. Currently free (as of Jan 2015) but soon to be charging admission. There are a few pieces of work that I really enjoy, notably a few Hudson River Artist paintings. However IMA is no match to other major collections in other cities unless there is a special exhibit. So if you are in town it... More

We spent a good three hours exploring all the levels of the lovely museum. Much more extensive than I had originally expected. They will start charging an $18.00 fee in April, but we were luckly to still get in for free. A must see if you appreciate any form of art.

The art museum is huge and we only conquered part of one floor in an afternoon. There's also a nice trail over to the Oilfield's house, which is open for tours and quite fun. Lots of interesting Indy history! They are going to start charging for general admission in April I think so consider going now.

This museum has a little bit of everything. All of it is well done. great collection, wonderful gift shop and very courteous employees and volunteers. Also the cafe was unique in its selections. Did I say it was free! Yes, except for special exhibits. Well, why not charge!

Penrod fest is so fun. The grounds are beautiful. Great for photo taking. Love the inside of the museum as well. It's a must do in Indianapolis.

I first discovered the Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA) in 2007 while visiting Indianapolis. I live in a town with a small museum, so I take every opportunity to visit larger museums in other cities when I travel. I was pleasantly surprised by IMA. It has a lot to offer and I loved that is was free. They do accept,... More

We visited the museum for the Georgia O'Keefe exhibit. We wished there had been more of her work, even though there was quite a bit. The photos and commentary were excellent. We were there on December 31st and much of the museum was closed to prep for a NYE gala, which is understandable, however that wasn't in big bold print... More

My wife and I went for the first time a couple years ago, and we loved it so much we brought the kids the next time we visited Indy. I enjoy museums, but honestly, most art museums are a bit snooty for my taste, as they seem more interested in displaying their pieces rather than the experience of art. This... More
