Free museums in Indianapolis

Situated directly in the center of Indiana, Indianapolis is among the largest dozen cities in the country and the state's biggest tourist destination. Many travelers visit for its easy access to the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway - which is why it's called the "Racing Capital of the World" - but the locale is also home to an array of cultural museums, historical landmarks and colorful public gardens. Additionally, the Midwestern city is ideal for travelers on a budget, thanks in part to the excellent Indianapolis deals that Thrifty Car Rental offers on its diverse range of Indianapolis rental cars. Other money-saving features include these free attractions:

Indianapolis Museum of Art

For an exploration of one of the oldest and most expansive art institutions in the country, drive your Indianapolis car rental over to the Indianapolis Museum of Art on Michigan Road. It's situated on a lush landscape that spans more than 150 acres and is filled with beautiful gardens that date back to the 1920s when they were created by renowned landscape architects the Olmstead Brothers. Inside, you'll find a vast permanent collection that contains more than 50,000 pieces. It's perhaps best known for its massive Asian art display, though you should also take some time to see the African and Oceanic works held in the new Eiteljorg Suite.
