It was so much more than I was expecting. They have Van Gogh's and Picasso's and a whole floor of contemporary art (4th). The gift shop is great, too.

I love the IMA! It is a place of adventure and serenity at the same time. The exhibits are amazing. I particularly enjoyed the Asian exhibit. The gardens are beautiful in the summer. A must see several times a year.

I visit the IMA a couple times of year for either the summer nights movies outside, to hike with my dog or to spend a day exploring art! Beautiful museum inside and out!

So few people seem to realize that we have a great art museum in Indy. It used to be free full time, but sadly now is only free one day of each month. Definitely worth the trip!

Lived in the neighborhood growing up and the museum was my favorite place to visit in our neighborhood. The new facility is awesome and full of great history and fun things to do! Enjoy your visit!

I enjoyed my time at IMA. I first took a walk around the gardens and sat by the near by stream to do some writing. There were a few runners who passed by. The only reason why I did the gardens first is that the...More

Hey there~The art park you are talking about is behind the IMA. I accessed it from an exit off of 38th Street. It's right at the exit and so is a parking lot. At that lot you are right there, a few feet and you are down in... More

The Penrod festival would be ideal....my other favorite for local artist is the Broad Ripple Art festival and Talbot Street Fair. Both are very well attended try it again this year.
