Indianapolis Museum Of Art Reviews & Ratings

  • I caught a flat driving pass here and had to park in the parking lot. I never knew this place was here. Having nothing to do but wait for my tire to get fixed, I went inside. One of the best decision I've ever made. It was beautiful (and I only went on the first floor). It was clean and refreshing. The art work was amazing. I order some food and a drink, the food was great and plentiful. The guy who took my order made me feel welcomed! I will be back to see the rest of the place. My new favorite place! God works in mysterious ways.

  • Went to Fall Harvest - perfect day! Many things to do with lots of space to add things next year (and the next). Be sure to choose at least one of the chef demos - the education and samples are fabulous! Art projects are varied and good for many age levels. Food was, unfortunately, limited. Hope next season will bring more food and drink vendors.

  • My daughter attends University of Indianapolis and needed to go to the art museum for a class project. She is on crutches. We were greeted so warmly when we arrived. She was given free admission as a college student and we were immediately asked if we needed a wheelchair, which we did. They stored her crutches behind the admission desk. We loved the exhibits and I will definitely return. Thank you so much for a very positive experience.

  • We had not been since the museum had changed to Newfields. I was amazed at how much there was for my younger child to do. The staff was very helpful and easy to find. There were many interact stations placed throughout the museum to hold little ones interests. There was more than we could see in one visit and we plan on going back soon to visit again. If this review was helpful please hit the thumbs up! Thanks!

  • This was a nice museum. Something for everyone. We thought they were open until 8:00 but they closed at 5 because of the art festival so we did see the first floor. But I would recommend going.
