Lots to see at the Indianapolis Museum of Art- Indiana

If you’re looking for a fun and educational place to take the kids, and you just happen to be in Indianapolis, be sure to stop at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. To begin, ask for a Family Guide at the welcome desk and they will give you tips and suggestions to get the most out of your visit. You can also go on a Family Tour. If you have kids age 4 and up, they have Art Packs, which is free.
The museum is massive. It is four floors full of amazing displays. My personal favorite was the Asian art. Simply breathtaking. There is just so much to see. There’s also African Art, American Painting and Sculpture to 1945, Ancient Art of the Americas, Ancient Art of the Mediterranean, Architectural Sites (outside of the museum), Contemporary Art, Contemporary Design, Decorative Arts, European Painting and Sculpture to 1945, Native American Art, Oceanic Art, Prints, Drawings and Photographs, and Textile and Fashion Arts.
On the second floor they have a space dedicated to children called the Star Studio. This area is intended for kids of all ages! They have activities for kids from infant on up. There is even a HUGE chalkboard that kids and parents alike can draw all over. (We had a lot of fun with that!) Also included is a table full of blocks in different sizes and colors kids can use to build whatever they can think of.

On top of all that (well, actually adjacent to all that) is The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature 100 Acre Park. The 100 Acres includes woodlands, wetlands, meadows, and a 35-acre lake. It’s open daily from dawn to dusk and it’s perfect for letting kids run off some energy followed up with a picnic. (Oh and hey Mom, you’ve seen part of this park displayed if you’ve watched the movie “The Fault in our Stars”. Remember the BIG display of bones? That’s “Funky Bones” from this park!) Dogs are allowed at the park, but must be kept on a leash. Bicycles are allowed too, but not skateboards, and cyclists have to yield to pedestrians.
Before attempting to visit the museum and grounds, I would suggest going online and downloading a map. In fact, look around the website in general. Really get a feel for the place, and figure out exactly what you and your family want to see. I will give you a heads up though. If you are thinking about buying a souvenir from the Art Museum Gift Shop, don’t. They have a nice selection of cute things, but it’s going to cost you. A lot. Something as simple as a t-shirt is going to run you about $32. That’s before taxes. There’s also a cute little café, but again, it’s not cheap. You’re better off running down the street and grabbing a burger.
The Indianapolis Museum of Art is absolutely beautiful. It’s also massive. My advice to you if you plan to go see it is take a couple of days if you can. With four floors packed with things to see and do, it takes a while to take it all in.
