“This is a main Library for Indianapolis. The original part of the building built in 1906. It is worth seeing the main reading room, decorated in an Egyptian revival style. Go to the 6th floor of the new addition for some great views. ”

Art Gallery
“This is an amazing place to go to for Indy's "First Friday" event. The first Friday of every month is an amazing event where galleries stay open late for everyone to come check out all of the artwork. There are usually hors d'oeuvres and drinks served. However, this place has rooms upon rooms of numerous local artist's work spaces, with completed artwork and work in progress. It's unlike anything you've ever seen.”
