I'm hoping I'm reviewing the right place... this little memorial was located under the big middle sculpture in the middle of town, the exhibit was really awesome, they did a great job showing off the things they had and it was FREE the day we went. Loved it!

I was in awe and appreciation of our soldiers and all they have done and are doing. It's a must see. It was educational. Even the younger kids were fascinated.

Had a great time. My children loved seeing artifacts from every time period. Really got them thinking. The attraction was free. Spend a good couple of hours there and it definitely didn't feel like it. I highly recommend.

Great views from the top, spend the $2 dollars on the elevator, no need for a heart attack. The exhibit itself is very nicely done. I was thoroughly impressed. Very well throughout and a nice tribute to local Indiana civil war participants. Must see and do and easily found and viewable.

The idea of using the War Memorial as the housing for a war museum is a great idea (I've not come across it before). The museum is packed full of artefacts and is very interesting. The "shrine room" is an incredible space. Really enjoyed my visit here and would thoroughly recommend anyone visiting Indy to come here.

this War Memorial is really nice. It has all kinds of items from the different wars from way back up to the current war. Very nice display and if you want to hold an event, they have the area for that too.

The Indiana War Memorial is an awe inspiring facility. It took my breath away when I walked into the Memorial Room.

The artistry of the various sculptures and reliefs is amazing. Look closely into every detail, or just sit on the steps with a cup of coffee and enjoy. A great downtown spot for a quick outdoor meeting or people watching.
