I was dropping my daughter off at Butler and decided to visit the museum which is right next door. It was a wonderful visit and cannot wait to get back down to Indy to visit the museum(and my daughter!).

We live in Indy and we cannot believe that the IMA is free. The Museum is small, but well curated. We have been with the whole family and I have taken the Brownie Troop there. We have always had fun. The grounds are worth a trip alone. The gardens are beautiful and inviting and the sculptures dotted around are delightful.... More

My 93 year old mother and I went to the IMA today and had a wonderful time. We got there at 11:50 with them opening at 12:00. There was a parking lot for $5.00 (non-members) but on asking there is a free handicap parking lot just to the left of the museum. We parked for free! We started with lunch... More

A wonderful collection of art that is tastefully hung (apart from the British masters -which look like they are in set from a Hammer Horror film!). Free to enter - this is a combination of the old and new (some gorgeous 20th century stuff). Indiana should be proud of this jewel - from the LOVE scuplture outside to the Picasso,... More

Museum was free to get in. Parking is $5 in the lot. We walked on the grounds over to the Lily house and gardens very nice! There was a fee if you want to see special exhibits in the museum. Café inside the museum, did not visit it.

This is a very impressive museum of fine art. An exceptional collection of works by both well and lesser known artists, in a very nice facility in beautiful locale sounded by gardens. General admission is free, there is a parking fee, and a fee for special exhibits. Too much to see in one day and do it justice. I focused... More

We didn't have much time in Indianapolis, but wanted to make sure we saw something! The grounds and outdoor gardens are exquisite, definately a must see. The original LOVE sculpture is here, many others do exist worldwide. We spent our entire hour outside on the grounds, even without seeing the museum it was well worth it!

Take a few minutes off your feet, good coffee, acceptable pastry. The dining area had a good view of a garden type area, pleasant, roomy, bright. Eating would be about the average prices, and thus a value taking into consideration you are at a gallery.

My husband and I went on a Sunday afternoon and it was a great time. Something fun and different to do. The outside space and garden's are beautiful as well.

The staff, the building, the layout, the displays, all world class. I have been to a lot of museums and galleries around the world, this one is right up there.
