Besides the beauty of the garden, there is art, antique cars, carousel, ponds, etc. beautifully manicured surroundings. Plenty of bathrooms around park. Paradise for kids to run around.

This was the collection of Josiah Lilly of Lilly Pharmaceutical. It is nice to see these cars as you would have 50 or 100 tears ago. The sprawling grounds were an adventure and we have made plans to go back next week after the Memorial...More

A beautiful experience that cannot be conveyed but has to be experienced. Dress comfortably for a day to remember with whoever you're with and enjoy the walk!

If you love rhododendrons, don't miss this lovely garden. I have visited many gardens and nowhere else can compare to this one in terms of both quantity and varieties of rhododendrons. A sea of rhododendrons in different colors and many of them are very tall.

We visited in late April, so the gardens were not quite blooming, however, we still thoroughly enjoyed it. Plus it was a rainy, cold day as well, so I can imagine how great it would be on a sunny warm day! The car museum is...More

I don't believe so. These are separate museums. I recommending calling ahead to see if they are in a group that offers reciprocal admissions.
