These gardens would be worth travelling to even if they were not part of the Museum of Art site. Great variety of landscape, peaceful and wonderfully relaxing. Be sure to visit.

Stopped by here on a trip to Indy with my mom. The grounds and gardens are beautiful and we enjoyed walking around. The tour of the house was also interesting and I recommend it.

You can stroll the beautiful grounds & take a tour of the mansion and see how the rich lived during the end of the Gilded Age. Unbelievable wealth in a time when the average American struggled to put food on the table. It is comforting...More
