We are not your typical museum goers. Our daughter is a design student in college. Her professor recommended this museum (Indianapolis has many museums). All the employees and volunteers there were very friendly and helpful and loved sharing their knowledge of the exhibits. I believe the works span 5000 years! Very informative. Plus there were hands-on demos. Also, the space... More

This place is really cool because it has mini golf, which is free once you're in the museum. The cafe is also very nice but pretty pricey, however portions are large and the food is tasty. They need more modern art displays. I wasn't majorly impressed with the contemporary collection. Its $18 entry fee per adult which I find very... More

I walk the gardens to clear my head and relax. Seek out all statues, fountains, etc. Different seasons for different blooms. Fall on blue sky days for nice photography. Check out the Lilly donated land on the other side of the creek.

There have been lots of improvements to the museum and grounds in revent years. The museum itself has a lot of quality work, mainly paintings but also several nice bronze sculptures and other works. Through October they've added a mini golf course on the second floor patio that features creative nods to famous hoosiers from Dick the Bruiser to Kurt... More
