An amazing memorial right in Indianapolis. Neat views from the memorial and the museum is very well done! A lot of interesting artifacts, covering many years of history and war. Went on a Sunday afternoon, free parking, free admission and not too crowded. Would visit again when in Indianapolis.

My family and I loved the war memorial! My dad is a huge fan of world war II so we recommend it to those who have a passion for the past. Displays were great, lots to read and look at! Our favorite part was the shrine at the top! :) it is well worth the walk up the stairs. We... More

We stumbled on the memorial while driving around. It was beautiful at night and we really enjoyed checking out the shops around it. We didn't get to go in but worth the 30 min stop.

Outside looks amazing.. Most of the inside displays look like a hi school project. Still choked with history , and free is always a bonus

The rotunda is beautifully grand. I get the impression that it was designed to hold state funerals (for famous veterans, maybe?) There is a small museum with a surprising number of military artifacts-- a helicopter, a missile, and (I think) a jeep, to name but a few. They actuall rent out the entrance hall, which is very grand itself, for... More

I took my mother to see the war memorial in February. The memorial is a great place to learn about all the wars. The exhibits are all good and the memorial is set up so as you walk your way through time. I lived in Indianapolis for over 10 years, and didn't know the memorial was even there!! How sad... More

Had a great time. The shrine upstairs is beautiful. Leading up to it are the names of all the Soldiers who fought in WWII and WWI. The radio room is interesting as well. You can see the whole museum in about 2 and a half to 3 hours.

We climbed all 330 steps to the top and back down. There wasn't really anything to see except the view at the top, but it was neat. The museums at the bottom had some interesting things.
