“Great Art Musuem for everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

This museum has unexpected wonders for art enthusiasts. Works by well known artists such as Rembrandt, Rubens, El Greco, Monet, Renoir and Pissarro. Art from all ages and all parts of the world. Amazingly, there is no entrance fee. They accept donations from visitors. We took our grandchildren on a Saturday when they have age appropriate art activities for kids. They enjoyed these, but also enjoyed looking at this incredible art collection. A few years ago I took my brother in law who was art curator at the Illinois State Museum. He was amazed at the quality of art here. Nearby - still on museum grounds is the Art and Nature Park. This is a wooded area with a 35 acre lake and dotted with large pieces of art.
Highly recommended.

“fashions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

I go to IMA a couple times a year. There is always something new, even in the regular galleries. I love the fashion gallery. An amazing collection with Halston (from Indiana) plus many other innovative designers.

“Great museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

great collection of a variety of works from artists worldwide, from the old masters to the best of contemporary artists. Everything from sculpture and pottery to watercolor and oil paintings to charcoal and pencil drawings. One could spend days in the museum viewing all the displays.
