Art meets nature in the Eiteljorg Gardens which are nestled along the scenic Indianapolis Downtown Canal. Whether you are looking for a quiet respite or the opportunity to learn more about Indiana native plants, the Eiteljorg Gardens are a treat for the senses whatever the season. As you wind your way through the garden paths, you will encounter plants rich in aesthetic appeal and ethno botanical history.
Seasonal sets of exploratory garden cards (see example at right) are available at the admissions desks when you visit the museum. Carry a set with you as you stroll through the gardens and learn interesting facts about specific trees, shrubs, flowers and plants along the way. You may also download the cards prior to your visit.
