Indianapolis Museum of Art surpassed my expectations. It had so much to offer and is such a beautiful site. You really do need to allow enough time to fully enjoy it, at least 3 to 4 hours.

Are there places to stop for short term parking around The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park? I'll have 2 small kids with me and don't think they'll be up to walking to each stop with the amount of distance between them.

We had planned on taking family pictures at the 100 acre woods on Sunday, but weather says thunderstorms likely. Would we be able to take pictures inside the museum if it is raining?

The Penrod festival would be ideal....my other favorite for local artist is the Broad Ripple Art festival and Talbot Street Fair. Both are very well attended try it again this year.
