“Nice selection of plants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We recently visited the greenhouse area of the IMA complex. There are lots of varieties of interesting and unusual plants as well as old standbys. The stock is in excellent condition and the prices are reasonable. Some of the available categories are trees, shrubs, succulents, annuals, perennials, ground covers and cacti. The gift shop also has some delightful pieces of art and other garden/natural related items also at very fair pricing.
It's not a large facility and can be absorbed in an hour or less. The staff are are most helpful in answering any questions and providing advice if needed. An interesting locale, surrounded by natural and formal gardens near the Lilly mansion a few hundred feet away.

“Can't beat the free price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

I love all the different collections and styles of art. Each floor brings a different surprise. My favorite is contemporary but I also enjoy the rest. I always have a good time wandering around and there is always something new to see every time I visit.

“Nice way to spend the afternoon. . . .”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Enjoyed all the exhibits. The museum has three floors of various types of exhibits: cultural, natural history and certain specific exhibits. The featured exhibits when we were there were Abraham Lincoln and James Dean. The museum has a tea room and small cafe and lots of spacious areas both inside and out.

“Can't believe its free!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Visited Indianapolis for the first time and we were very impressed by the IMA. And to think it had free admission except, however, for the separate Ai Weiwei exhibit. For that alone, there was a $12 adult admission. The exhibits were varied and most enjoyable. Well worth a visit. It was a nice surprise to learn that photography is allowed in the galleries. Our only disappointment was with the weather. Because of the rain, we could not roam the grounds. The museum is definitely worth many return visits.
