We visited the museum for the Dream Car exhibit, showing sixteen historic concept cars. The exhibit was great and my wife even liked it, though she is not a car person. Audio guides are available at no additional cost. The price was $18, but it provided access to all the museum including the Dream Car exhibit and all galleries. I... More

We visited on July 3. Specifically we went to see the "Dream Car" exhibit. The exhibit included a free audio tour, which was very much appreciated. I was with my wife and 2 young adult sons. We started on the top, 4th floor and while I was not expecting a great reaction from my sons, they seemed to really enjoy... More

Excellent place to enjoy art, beautiful gardens and sculptures. It was free until one month ago. I hope it return to be free after the summer and the car exposition end.

A beautiful part of our Indianapolis community, lovely grounds, evolving exhibits and delightful place for special events. A great place for a school field trip, summer movie on the terrace or a new exhibit.

I've been to the Indianapolis Museum of Art three times in four decades, and was impressed to see how much the museum has grown since my last visit. Happened to visit on a free Saturday (1 per month, I believe) and there was a large crowd drawn by a special exhibit inside, plus a garden perennial swap-and-sale, several food trucks,... More

Dream car exhibit was fantastic--you can borrow ipods that provide information on the various exhibits. They have both and adult and children's version. The grounds also include the Lilly House as well as beautiful gardens. The museum is easy to get to by bus.

Really a world class museum with a lot to offer. I think the outside gardens and art park are even more fun than the interior. Sad that the entrance fee is so high now. We shall see how that works out.

Amazing museum and totally free, I love the modern art wing the most and they have movies outside on Fridays during the summer. Definitely a must see!

We USED TO love the IMA. We'd take the dog and walk the grounds. Loved it. However with the new admissions policy and restricted access we no longer can. I don't even mind buying a family membership but the access where we can bring the dog is so overcrowded that we wasted half a day only to turn back around... More

It had been 45 years since I visited this museum and it surpassed my expectations. The displays of art and artifacts are so well organized that it is easy to enjoin children into discussions about regions and historic periods. In addition to artsy stuff they offered a showcase of historic auto's, clothing and many other neo and reo classical cultural... More
