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.

Last month we stopped at the Art Museum on our way out of Indy. It is free and so is the parking. Very easy to get to. There were many people but it is so big it doesn't seem crowded, Personally, I thought it was absolutely beautiful. So many paintings, artifacts and exhibits. Even walking slow there is a lot...

We went specifically to view the Neo-Impressionists exhibit and it was fantastic. This is a large museum and would take all day to go through completely. We spent a few hours here and loved it. There's also a sculpture garden outside that we weren't able to get to as it was very warm the day we were visiting, but we... More

We enjoyed the outdoor art and gardens on this visit. The weather was so beautiful we just did the out door adventure.

Living in Indianapolis the past 5 years, the IMA is my resort. It is the place I go to clear my head, connect with my creativity, and view the past, present, and future. Now, do give the museum some credit: It is a free museum but as of about 2012 you can park for free and take a lovely stroll,... More

Its great that the museum is free, but you will pay for parking when you arrive. The exhibits are very nice and laid out well. The only things that we didn't like were the volunteers that constantly followed us around, almost as if they thought we were shoplifting. It made us want to hurry through instead of take our time.... More

I expected more after the reviews. It was nice, but I'm glad we didn't have to pay. It is fairly small but in a nice garden. A few nice pieces but nothing outstanding. Lots of empty walls. Looks like they could use a few more pieces.

I have been going to the IMA since I was a child. Yes some of the pieces are still the same art I've been admiring since my youth, but they also circulate in a lot of very amazing new pieces regularly. I remember the first time I went, for a 3rd grade field trip, and the feely of pure amazement... More
