Indianapolis is a great example of planning with a purpose. The war memorial is a great stop as you walk the mall downtown from the Soldiers and Sailors monument to the library.

What a wonderful experience learning about the monument. The museum was free which was a plus and accepted donations. Plus it was fun to walk up the 314ish steps to the top and look out over Indianapolis.

This was amazing! Plan plenty of time to go through the museum in the basement. The memorial room is beyond words. So much to see.

I wish I had more time to spend here, but the place was amazing. If I visit Indy again, I will be coming back. The staff there were friendly and helpful, as were the other guests there.

I visited the war memorial with friends and I am so glad we did! Auditorium is lovely, and go up the stairs where all Indiana veterans names are listed. Upstairs there is huge hanging American flag and stars in the ceiling-- Just spectacular!

Occasionally you stumble on a memorial that just stops you in your tracks. This is one of them. Accessible from doors on the North side, the Indiana War Memorial is perhaps the best free museum in Indianapolis. You enter into a spectacular lobby with an information desk.

Having evenings free after conference, this was very neat to visit at night. Visited on 9/12 and it was poignant the day after the anniversary of 9/11. Great historical monument!
