“Great building; great contemporary art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Thoroughly enjoyed a long visit there. Weather not conducive to a garden walk, tho I understand that is lovely. Mostly, the contemporary art was an eye-opener - a really engaging collection, wonderfully displayed.

“Beautiful family oriented”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

This was a great day when my husband and I took our young children to the museum. At first I was a little worried that they wouldn't enjoy it because of their age but they loved it. We ended up taking them to the summer time outdoor movie and it was a memorable evening!

“Quality and variety”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

I'm going to enjoy any museum with some Monet, a little Rodin, and classy architecture. The Indianapolis Museum was very well designed--it's a nice combination of classical and modern. The layout of the inside is great: as you walk it allows you to easily see everything without having to double back and make sure you didn't miss any rooms.
The parking was $5, but there is no entrance fee. There is a coat room as well as lockers you can put in a quarter to use. Curators/guides are plentiful and they are eager to answer you questions. All of these things helped make the visit very convenient.
My favorite thing about this museum was the level of care and detail put into the placards describing each picture--in addition to the basic artist/title/origin/date there was a great amount of interesting detail. The text was well-written and worth the read every time.

“Great Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Not the biggest or the best in the world, but this is a great museum, with both indoor and outdoor exhibits I would suggest a summertime visit for the best experience.
