In my opinion, Indianapolis is an under rated arts destination. There are many fabulous museums in the city. My personal favorite is the Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA). If you are visiting and staying downtown, a car is required to get there. However, it is well worth the trip. The campus includes the museum, the Art and nature park, and... More

I love going to this museum whether I'm actually in it or just strolling on the grounds. It's a beautiful place to be inside and out.

We were unsure if our children ages 6, 8 and 10 would get much out of a visit but since we were in the area and the museum was free with a donation for Martin Luther King day we decided to give it a try. What a find! We spent several hours here and didn't even see 2/3 of the... More

Visited the IMA to see the Gustav Baumann exhibit. It was wonderful. Everything about the museum is so nice. The gift shop. The snack bar/restaurant. If you are a member, you can just stop in anytime, even for just an hour. So inspiring.

After traveling through Europe, most visitors to USA will write off the entire country for its arts museums past the big museums in New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, Chicago and Los Angeles. To do so would be a shame though, as there are hidden gems throughout the entire country such as this museum in Indianapolis. Obviously the masterpieces here... More

I came here alone one day to enjoy the silence and see what my local art museum houses. The grounds are beautiful along with the buildings interior. Everyone I came in contact with was very friendly and helpful and I wandered the three stories of the museum. Overall, it had a nice array of artwork from Matisse to O'Keefe. I... More
