Had a great time at the museum just wish we had more time. A nice selection of art and the gardens looked beautiful. Raining on the day we were there so didn't get to spend time in the gardens.

Such an interesting and interactive tour for all ages! Really challenges you to think out of the box and you come out with an entirely new perspective.

I hope they continue and expand the beer garden. Good beer, great little charcuterie board, but not quite enough food / choices to make a dinner of. We are members.

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.
