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

IMA is a good medium sized gallery which offers enough free standard exhibits to justify its exist combined with some first class temporary exhibits requiring payment to keep you coming back. The grounds and expanded outside exhibits add enormously to the attraction of the entire facility, especially for family visits or as a great place to take a walk on... More

The Indianapolis Museum of Art seems like a hidden gem in Indianapolis. It has a large art museum with a wide range of pieces by well-known artists in a very easy size and layout to experience in a small amount of time. The Lily House and 100 acre woods are must-see parts of the museum as well on a nice... More

If you enjoy art and/or the outdoors, then visit IMA. The gardens are so full of life, the art is in wonderful condition and has little plaques with history on it, and the different historical homes you can view are wonderful insights into history. This place amazed me as a teenager, and still does years later.

My wife and I were able to locate free on site parking and admission is FREE. There were two full floors of various types of art. Some of the galleries require admission but a majority of the museum is free.
