As far as the curated pieces go, the museum is decent at best. The grounds are stunning, though. If you are looking to introduce children to plastic arts, this is the place to go!

This museum has an awesome array of art work and an outdoor garden area to enjoy the landscape. Our association rented the Museum for a reception with a bar, band, and light finger foods and it was a great way to connect with colleagues and enjoy the Art in this beautiful setting.

We had visited a few times before and wanted to do so again. A very diverse and interesting collection of art in a spacious building. The park surrounding the museum is beautiful and we enjoyed the stroll around the lake.

Had never been to an outdoor art museum before. Very neat! Loved the huge exhibits, especially the hanging discs and log tree swings. Beautiful lake as well. We saw a lot of bikers which would probably be neat to do there too.

Let me start by saying that I majored in Museum Studies in College. That being said, I find the IMA to be one of the best laid out Art Museums I have seen. The collections are outstanding and very wide in their scope. whatever your tastes in Art, you will find something that will grab your attention. The Museum itself... More

A nice way to while away a sunny afternoon. Mini golf on the roof was an unexpected treat. Some of the holes were a challenge.

In addition to having a well-rounded collection and frequent, interesting special exhibits, the museum is great for families, because it includes many artistic activities for children. Our 1st graders never tire of visiting the museum. There is even miniature golf (free for members) Admission is rather steep, but membership is a good value for those who are likely to make... More

I love to walk on grounds but now it's $18 to do anything at IMA. Too pricey. Many interesting exhibits. There was a special quilt exhibit when I was there last. Entry way always has thought provoking display.
