Colleges & Universities
The IMA regularly hosts programs and tours for university and college faculty and staff. The goal of these programs is to better serve regional, national and international campuses, to foster connections with campus communities and to increase student and faculty engagement with the Museum. People from all majors and backgrounds are invited to explore the IMA's collections and exhibitions.
Students attending Butler University, CTS, IUPUI, Marian University, Martin University, and University of Indianapolis may receive a free IMA annual membership. Students may apply at our Guest Services desk and must have a valid e-mail address and show proof of enrollment. Prescheduled tours from these colleges/universities are free. For all other colleges/universities, prescheduled student groups will receive a reduced admission of $5 per participant. Make sure to get scheduled at least 3 weeks in advance of your trip.
