“Fabulous museum.”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

I loved the free admission--so much so that I later joined the museum as a member! There is something for everyone to enjoy--modern, traditional, fiber. The displays are interesting and informative.

“Indianapolis Museum of Art”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

The grounds are beautiful. The museum for me is a restful, inspiring place. Whether you know anything about art or not, you will be impressed by the talented artists and sculptors whose works are displayed.

“Nice selection of plants”
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!”
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. . . .”
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.
