The Museum had some of the friendliest staff i have ever encounter. The exibits were nice, i only wished I had accounted for time to see the gardens and outdoor exhibits. the property is very large and if you plan on seeing everything, you will do a lot of walking.

The exhibition of the museum is very nice. We liked the European art on the second floor and the contemporary art on the fourth floor. Especially the room devoted to Georges Seurat and other Neo-Impressionism artists was a big positive surprise. At the time of visit there was also the special exhibit on Dream Cars which should be a must... More

The museum is currently showing an excellent exhibit on futurist cars--loved by men and women alike. The Lily House is a great example of a country home of the time 1910-1920. Currently, there is a small but very good exhibit on silver at the Lilly House. Be sure to see the video about country homes at the Lilly House. This... More

This used to be one of our favorite spots. We would wander through the gardens, tour the Eli Lily house, explore the museum floor by floor. We would shop in both the museum shop and buy plants in the garden shop. All that has changed since they are now charging $17.00 for admission. This is way too much for seniors,... More

We were at the Museum to see Funky Bones. We enjoyed the beautiful grounds and the interesting exhibits. It's worth going to see the LOVE Statue, the Lichtenstein and, of course Funky Bones. Great way to spend a day b

The IMA museum and gardens are amazing in every season, but especially now with the Dream Cars exhibit here until August 2015 and the gardens in bloom! The cars are a MUST SEE even for non-car enthusiasts! Gorgeous and accessible for all ages.

Nice museum. Beautiful gardens. Used to be free, except for special events, but not anymore. 😒. The 100 acre woods is still free and a fun place to walk around and enjoy a beautiful day.

Gorgeous grounds, a beautiful building, and a very very good selection of art - including right now a special exhibit of concept cars - makes it a must-do on my list of things to do in Indy!

I was surprised to see a museum of this caliber in Indy! The building is really beautiful. We've been members at the Art Institute in Chicago, so I wasn't really expecting much, but we enjoyed the eclectic collection. Most of all, we enjoyed the grounds. The gardens are really lovely, especially during the spring. I would absolutely by a membership... More
