Fifteen minutes north of Monument Circle is the Indianapolis Museum of Art, one of the nation's largest and oldest general art museums.
Located on 152 acres of gardens and grounds, the museum's permanent collection spans a vast range of cultures and eras, and numbers more than 50,000 works (including one of the nation's largest and most significant collections of Asian art, the newly designed Eiteljorg Suite of African and Oceanic Art, along with so many other equally impressive features that you should really visit their website in order to be properly awed).
Elsewhere on the grounds, visitors may tour the historic Oldfields estate, then stroll through gardens designed in the 1920s by the famous Olmstead Brothers landscape design firm. Elsewhere, 100 Acres: The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park offers visitors one of the United States' foremost museum contemporary sculpture parks, with installations integrated into woodlands, wetlands, lakes and meadows.
