For the most part the staff was friendly. One was real patient when giving directions to the museum. One was very passionate about the exhibit. The art collection was extensive and broadranging. Even the stairs looked like art! The overall ambiance of the rooms would take you back in time. Pucks restaurant inside was very tasty and customer-friendly.

If you ever have a free afternoon and are looking for something to do other than go to the movies or shopping etc, The Indianapolis Museum Of Art is a fantastic place to go. I love to go with a friend or two and just roam the floors. They have really good collections, something you may not expect to see in Indiana. They are so many different things to see. I am not particularly art savvy and I still enjoy it. Unfortunately they do charge admission now, it used to be free. I believe there is free admission on a particular day however. I like going now that I am a little older because I appreciate it more. Its a good idea to keep an eye out for special exhibits because some of those can be pretty intersting and you will get to see art from all over. There is lots of room for parking and they do have a nice size gift shop.

To be honest, I was not expecting a museum of this quality in Indiana. I drove to Indy to see a traveling exhibit of the International Arts and Crafts Movement sponsored by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and was astounded by the types of paintings in each of the galleries. The traveling exhibit was amazing and the museum had an interesting special collection about the Indiana-based Overbeck Pottery in a smaller gallery. The other galleries had quality pieces by major artists. There weren't as many pieces of art as some of the larger museums, but what the museum is missing in depth, it has all over others in the quality of the art is has. The gift store is great, but it doesn't offer posters of some of the most obvious items in the collection. I was told that the museum recently started requiring admission. At $7, admission is not cheap. The special exhibitions also require a fee. In this case, the A & C exhibit was an additonal $14. Check out the yearly membership because it certainly pays to join in place of paying each time you see a new exhibit. Lots of free parking in front of the museum. The second floor is under reconstruction and will open some time next year. The only thing missing is a large collection of Indiana artists. I would assume that they would constitute a large portion of the display, but they do not. It would be nice to see a large special exhibit of the Hoosier Salon artists of 1920-1940.

PROS: Excellent collection!
CONS:

With our without children, beautiful weather, or rainy and cold, you can find something gorgeous here.

It's newly remodled and takes some getting used to parking/entrance, etc. but once you are in, you can see amazing canvases, sculpture, ethnic artifacts and incredible pop and contemporary art (my favorite area). Even my five year old is entertained here. And you can't beat the FREE pricetag!!

Just last week (5/6/2005 to be exact), the IMA re-opened its newly renovated facility. Although we have not been inside the museum since the renovations, the exterior of the building is beautiful and I'm sure the art collection has only been improved with the addition of exhibit space. There is also a new restaurant on site - Puck's. The gardens are incredible to walk through with various sculptures dotting the landscape.
