Took my 2 1/2 year old to the art museum. Seeing the displays through his eyes was enthralling. His behavior was excellent as he is the little "follow the rules" guy. He and I were connected by a shirt wrist to wrist Kinderkord. Immediately, I was informed that a leash was against the museum's rules. I told the guard that... More

This was our family's first time to visit Indy's Museum of Art. We love the art collection inside and truly enjoyed the gardens outside. We will come back!! I wish they had a discount for AAA members

....…is now, at last after the 2005 extension opened, in a reasonable state, with a clear route in and up to the galleries, what then? Poor signage means that you are thereafter on your own, so follow your nose as there is no clear route, nothing chronological about the presentation and it is poorly laid out. By a process of...

This museum is easy to navigate with escalators located at the entrance. Volunteers may also help you may your way though the 4-stories that encapsulate the building. The art collection is varied with works from across the globe and even includes portraits of some famous Hoosiers. One visit may not allow you enough time to look at the various attractions....

Beautiful place, really good collection, important artists, interesting things to do, definitely a good spot to feed our soul. And.. for "the fault in our starts" it's really close to "funky bones" art. Deserves a special visit.

I live in Indy and this is a great place to wander the grounds or visit the museum itself. Fantastic gift shop with one of a kind items to purchase

The IMA is truly a treasure in Indianapolis and a must stop. If you don't have time for the art museum and collection, stop by and walk the grounds. Its a beautiful setting that also houses the Virginia Fairbanks Art & Nature Park or the Lilly house and goldfields garden.

Full of fabulous works and beautiful landscapes. This is a great place to spend a few hours in peaceful harmony with art. There are a few interactive exhibits for kids and the hundred acres is perfect to run off some energy and explore. The downside with kids is many of the exhibits are not kid friendly, be prepared to be... More
