This is a very impressive museum of fine art. An exceptional collection of works by both well and lesser known artists, in a very nice facility in beautiful locale sounded by gardens. General admission is free, there is a parking fee, and a fee for special exhibits. Too much to see in one day and do it justice. I focused... More

We didn't have much time in Indianapolis, but wanted to make sure we saw something! The grounds and outdoor gardens are exquisite, definately a must see. The original LOVE sculpture is here, many others do exist worldwide. We spent our entire hour outside on the grounds, even without seeing the museum it was well worth it!

Take a few minutes off your feet, good coffee, acceptable pastry. The dining area had a good view of a garden type area, pleasant, roomy, bright. Eating would be about the average prices, and thus a value taking into consideration you are at a gallery.

The staff, the building, the layout, the displays, all world class. I have been to a lot of museums and galleries around the world, this one is right up there.

We visited the Face to Face exhibit, which we mention in our forthcoming novel, Jilly's Brilliant Caper. The exhibit is nicely presented. The museum is beautiful and well run. We were disappointed that it didn't open until 11 am and that there was not even any shopping that could be done until then.

The museum is spacious, more innovative than some, run by a seemingly happy and knowledgeable staff, and has a number of great venues: galleries on multiple floors, a great design exhibit among its permanent showings, child-friendly areas, and something that other museums ought to have: the 100-acre woods. This is a fascinating art garden or art forest or whatever you... More

My husband and I came to the Indianapolis Museum of Art because we still had some extra time downtown. We were able to park for free in the parking in front of the famous LOVE statue. We started in the 100 acre park looking at some of the houses that are there including the Eli Lily House. The gardens and... More

The acquisition of art just keeps growing and growing (as has the museum and grounds the past couple years!) The museum has a wide and varied display of art work over it's three HUGE floors that are separated according to where it is from. I've always enjoyed walking over the large grounds and taking in the Lily House. This place... More

I went to IMA alone while my husband was attending conference sessions for a business trip. I went to the museum exhibits and the 100 Acre Park. I found a serene spot next to the lake and read for a while! I felt completely safe and at peace. I definitely want to take my husband back some time.
