Fodor's Review

More than 125 years ago, this impressive art and cultural institution got its start with an exhibit of 453 works by 137 artists in a downtown Indianapolis hotel. It has since evolved into a collection more than 54,000 works, representing all genres, eras and continents. Known for its outstanding examples of watercolors by J.M.W. Turner, the museum also showcases a broad range of contemporary pieces and a recently reopened African collection of more than 300 objects. Another highlight is the outdoor 100 Acres sculpture park. On the second and fourth Saturday of each month, the museum offers themed tours geared toward younger visitors.
