This is truly a gem in Indianapolis; while there are museums with greater art collections, very few could compare with the grounds. There are lovely gardens and outdoor areas; there is a small building with a library for those interested in horticulture. There is an outdoor art area with many unusual sculptures and exhibits. The views of the river are beautiful and there are many activities throughout the year, including classic movies on the terrace, the Penrod Art Festival and tours of the Lilly Mansion. The shops are also very good, including a garden shop and the museum shops. The best part is that admission is normally free, but parking is not. A wonderful way to spend the day.
