What a fun experience to do yoga in the garden at the IMA. I can't wait to have time to explore them on my own as well as the museum itself.

My husband and I went there for the first time for a Colts game and absolutely loved the place. They didn't open the roof because it was too cold, but we hope to experience that sometime. It has great refreshments, but everything can be expensive...More

Very impressive museum for a relatively small town. Interesting collection of impressionists and neo-impressionists. African Art collection has a lot of interesting objects from different countries, well organized. Glass exhibit is worth seeing. Lilly house and the park around it are so picturesque, especially in...More
