The museum has a wonderful art collection and the grounds are really great for family picnics in the summer. They also have the 'Lily House' on the grounds, that can be toured. It was built for the Eli Lily family.

Saw both a Matisse exhibit and a Dream Cars exhibit there. I live near the the museum so it is convenient to visit. The best part is the first Thursday of each month is free admission including the special exhibits.
