This is the sort of museum that people travel long distances to visit. The special exhibits are excellent; the big one was Georgia O'Keeffe when I visited. I especially liked their architecture and design department. The security guard joked that people stand there thinking about redecorating at home; she was right. If you like contemporary art they have a large... More

Pretty much boring to me, but it was Free and on a cold Sunday, not much else to do. We did have to pay $5 for parking, it was worth that. They also have a cafeteria and a coat check.

Nice museum to visit - it covers all sorts of art from the french impressionist all the way to Indian, Japanese, Chinese and modern / abstract art. It's like a generic art museum with everything thrown in at different levels. The museum almost seemed empty (vitrually no visitors). The gardens around it is a pretty sight.

I spent about two hours a the IMA. I was greeted by a very friendly man in the lobby (people are really nice in Indy). First I went to the O'Keefe exhibit. The museum is free, but special exhibits have an entry fee ($15). I appreciated that the woman at the front desk told me the exhibit was not all... More

I love art, and the ART Museum is the place to visit also the attached mansion and grounds and gardens. It was beautiful!

The Indianapolis Museum of Art is wonderful inside and out. The Grounds are pristine and walking them was one of the highlights of being there in 3 seasons. When the Lilly House is decorated for Christmas, it rivals some of the larger mansions that I ha seen on tours. Did I ment that the museum is free except for parking... More

The art museum is small but it has a very nice Impressionist gallery and a nice early American section. Museum is free but you have to pay for the special exhibits. The grounds are beautiful.

I have been going to the Indianapolis Museum of Art for 30 years. It is a great place! I love the museum and the greenhouse. They offer great classes and host traveling collections. It's a great place to visit!
