Great spot to take fun photographs both inside and out. Make sure to go to the shrine level inside. I was lucky enough to have it to myself for a while and it was an amazing feeling being there - peaceful. The war museum goes on for what feels like forever. A little overwhelming for me and I love history!... More

My wife and I were trying to take in the high spots on our first trip to Indianapolis and stopped at the War Memorial. While it is impressive from the outside, we were astounded by what we found inside, In short, it is the best and most comprehensive museum on U.S. wars we have ever encountered, covering every conflict from...

What a nice great memorial. Nice to stop for a little bit during the week even on a rainy day it's still a nice bit of history. Very clean and comfortable and well presented

If you have interest in military history this is a great place to visit. The structure itself is magnificent & the history is well worth the trip.Just wait til you see what's in store on the lower level...amazing.

A spectacular memorial that dates back to the Civil War. This is a nice spot to visit right in the middle of downtown Indianapolis. The architecture and statuary are well worth visiting.

The war memorial is adjacent to a large and beautifull park, which many weekends has a fun event with live music. A very nice and safe area for a 30 minute walk

I've lived here for 21 years and never visited this war memorial. Well, I have been around it but never in it. We were downtown for an Alzheimer's walk and art on the circle last Saturday and we decided to go inside. Nice little gift shop very informative hosts. Lo icky tribute to veterans.

Thank Pattimoe
