The Indianapolis Museum of Art serves the creative interests of its communities by fostering exploration of art, design, and the natural environment. The IMA promotes these interests through the collection, presentation, interpretation, and conservation of its artistic, historic, and environmental assets.
The museum is very nice, but I really enjoy walking around the gardens. There is also a large statue garden that is a long walk but has some quirky art.
Very expensive but a pretty nice place. This was my first time visiting an art museum and I was i was amazed by the pieces of art. I was not impressed with the children's area but my son did enjoy touring the outside grounds.
