The fact that this is a high quality art museum and its all for free is awesome. They have a lot of great traveling exhibits that come through. Best part of the museum though are the grounds and the Lilly gardens, really cool.

Went to the IMA for the Robert Indiana exhibit at the IMA with friends. The museum was not overly crowded, and staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. The exhibit we saw was a paid exhibit, however much of the museum is free so we took advantage of many of the other galleries while there. Wonderful way to spend an afternoon... More

It's not just the art inside the IMA that makes it worthy of a visit. It's the magnificent grounds, gardens landscapes, etc. I often go just to be inspired by the outside of the art museum. Great for a picnic. Lots of space to walk and outdoor sculptures all around. Don't miss the Lilly Mansion, which has an excellent introductory... More

I took my 3 children, ages 14, 12, and 8 to the museum during our spring break trip to Indy. We enjoyed the multitude of different styles of art, from Van Gogh to contemporary sculpture. We also like the outdoor sculpture, the Lilly house, and the beautiful 100 acres of trails and pond attached to the museum's grounds. It was... More

Residents of Indianapolis are certainly proud to have such an incredible gift as the IMA. I encourage all people to take advantage of this incredible museum of art as well as the adjacent outdoor gardens. It is free. A bonus tip: Don't miss attending the Penrod art fair in September.

With a fabulous encyclopedic art collection, a great art and nature park with pieces by world known contemporary artists, magnificent botanical gardens and historic properties this in the spot you want to see in Rain or Shine. Every time I go it brings a smile to my face and enriches my life.

IMA is a wonderful museum with lots of programs, including a very nice restaurant and movie nights outdoors during the summer. But the very best part is the grounds. From spring bulbs galore to autumn foliage, the grounds are magnificent. Tours are offered on a regular basis which give insight into the history and development of the gardens of the... More

There is something for everyone at the IMA. The galleries have a wide range of artwork in an inviting environment. I thoroughly enjoy the outdoor spaces including the terraced gardens along the canal and 100 acres. The Lilly House is also a treat and is beautifully decorated for the holidays. There are plenty of spaces to enjoy over repeated visits... More

This is an exceptional museum on gorgeous grounds. It has some permanent collections and always a visiting exhibit of interest. There is also a beautiful gift shop. No visit to the city would be complete without a stop at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
