We had a wonderful visit to the IMA at the beginning of August. It is incredibly well curated, with a broad range of art on display, and the special Neo-Impressionist exhibit was very well done. I was particularly impressed with their modern art collection, which surprised me. I'm not a fan of modern art, but their collection was wonderful! The... More

Let's start by saying that Indianapolis is a small city, so you wouldn't expect this kind of museum here. But hey, it's got all you would expect in a larger place. If modern art is something you like, just spending sometime in front of the Love sign by Robert Indiana or the Robert Indiana's numbers is worth the visit. Also,... More

We found IMA on tripadvisor and were encouraged by all of the great reviews. Even that did not prepare us for this wonderful experience. We spent about 2 1/2 hours exploring and saw maybe half of the exhibits. The grounds themselves are beautiful, and there is another great piece of art everywhere you look. The museum is fantastic. One tip,... More

The featured Neo-Impressionism exhibit was mounted extremely well, and the permanent exhibit was also very well done. It is not a huge museum-but a very enjoyable one. We ran out of time so missed the Asian wing and really rushed through the outside sculpture garden. The cafeteria was reasonably priced and the food was great. The permanent exhibit is free,... More

This is must see if visiting Indianapolis. It's free, so that makes it great for families. The gardens on the property are just beautiful, and the artwork collection is good too. Again, it costs nothing, so this is a good stop.

I visited on my own and enjoyed the variety of the collection. I found the signs on the artwork to be especially helpful at this museum with detailed information about the artist and the work and a bit about the means of production or meaning of the piece, but not so much that it was laborious to read. Also, you... More

It takes several hours to go through it and then there's the Lilly house next door. Unfortunately we didn't get to finish our visit. A tornado went over Indy while we were there. Everyone had to go in the theater and when the weather cleared they closed the museum but I'll definitely be back.

Not that this place needs any more glowing reviews but on a cross country drive I saw all the great reviews and decided it would make a good stop. So glad we stopped here! We didn't even make it inside the museum but spent an hour wondering the grounds with great sculptures, fountains etc. Museum entry is free. There also... More

I may be biased because I'm a Fine Arts graduate, but this is the best free activity in Indianapolis that I visited! The art was outstanding and there are so many legendary artists that have a piece currently in this museum. It doesn't cost a thing! When I arrived, I arrived early in the off-season hours so that I could... More
