A great place that is a must see in Indianapolis! The art work is amazing, they have the Lily house which is beautiful and elegant. The events here are top notch as well. The Winterlights event is a highlight of the holiday season that will definitely put you in the holiday mood. This place is somewhere that doesn't get old and you can come back to again and again and still have an amazing time and see something new each time. This is a place that needs to go on your bucket list even if you aren't the biggest art lover out there.
Even during pandemic, museum gallieries were amazing
