It's a beautiful way to spend a day or even an afternoon. They exhibit a variety of art forms and special exhibits are often a plus.

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.

Hey there~The art park you are talking about is behind the IMA. I accessed it from an exit off of 38th Street. It's right at the exit and so is a parking lot. At that lot you are right there, a few feet and you are down in... More
