Anyone who would expect a Louvre, or Metropolitan Museum of Art might not find this museum to be of great interest, but as a regional museum it has a lot to offer. The museum has several El Greco's, a Michelangelo, several Picasso's, etc. It also has a very fine exhibit of contemporary art. The collections are well organized, and the... More

We've lived in a lot of cities and have been to our share of art museums. This is a great museum for a city of this size and we are so pleased with our membership. I would encourage anyone from out of town to visit this treasure with friendly staff, terrific pieces, and easy parking...at a reasonable price, too. I... More

The city of Indianapolis has a dry yet sad vibe to it. The city is very ratchet with barely anything amazing going on. I was DEFINTELY NOT impressed. I do not want to come back ever again. However, some of the people seemed polite and decent.

Did not think it would be for me , but my wife asked (blackmailed ) me to go. I loved it many works from the greats but also beautiful works from lesser known but no less talented artists.

We toured the grounds on the trails and walked around both the contemporary and impressionist galleries. Very nice facility. Cafe was very good for lunch as well.

The art museum is a wonderful experience and worth the time and fee. The art collections are expansive and appeals to all tastes. When you are done in the galleries, stop at the gift shop. They have beautiful and unusual gift items. Then make sure you spend time in the sclupture garden. Great photo op with the original Robert Indiana... More

There is a beautiful free sculpture garden adjacent to the museum. A perfect place for a family stroll or picnic!

Stopped here on a beautiful Saturday. As a tour of the Lily house was just beginning, I scurried over there. Marsha did a great job taking us through. It's a gorgeous place. The grounds are beautiful. I went through the four floors of the museum fairly quickly, but they have something for everyone.

A truly beautiful museum which offers both Military discounts and reciprocity. Volunteers are very kind and informative.
