Indianapolis Museum Of Art, Indianapolis Reviews

  • This place is a magical experience. Three floors of awe-inspiring exhibits await you inside. Outside, the stunning and immaculate landscaping leaves you truly awe-struck with its beauty. Included in admission is access to the Lily estate. Admission is nearly $20 for the day, So I went ahead and spend $80 for a year-long pass which allows me to bring a guest as well. More than worth it to get the season pass!

  • Gorgeous art and friendly staff. I visited here to help set up for an event with my job and the staff were all asking what they could do to help. Everyone was very outgoing and great to talk to. The building is covered in beautiful pieces of all sorts of materials as well. Overall was a great experience.

  • Just a wonderful art museum. We really liked the family day on Saturday that was Indian themed. The music and dancing was great. My 2 year old was fascinated by the children's area. The sequined canvases were such a good idea. Newfields is a great place. I recommend to anyone who lives in Indy or just visiting as I was.

  • What a wonderful Museum! It was well worth the time and the Uber ride to get there! The exhibits are beautiful and I never expected such a large variety of art. It is very eclectic. The restaurant has delicious food as well!

  • The IMA is an amazing place. I recommend getting a tour of Newfields (their grounds) because it is so educational. This place has so much history - the old houses, the architecture, the MANSION, the gardens, the trees, the groves, the old cars, the story of the family who lived there - it’s all so fascinating and captivating to view and learn about.
