I can't say enough about the IMA and the Lilly Gardens. What a wonderful and relaxing event to do on Mother's Day. The blooms display had faded, but the grounds were still beautiful! Join the IMA & become a member!

We had planned on taking family pictures at the 100 acre woods on Sunday, but weather says thunderstorms likely. Would we be able to take pictures inside the museum if it is raining?
