“awesome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Loved this monument as it is a central location. Very cool to see. The museum inside was closed however on the Monday we were there. Would have loved to have seen it.

“A Secret in the Center of town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Most visitors look UP - when they should also look underneath the War Memorial - and its much bigger collection at the War Memorial building about two blocks north) Do try climbing to the top - plan for a breather 1/2 way up, after you view the city from the top - great view by the way - then go underneath and see the Civll War collection.

“Strengthened by all the things to see nearby.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

The memorial is a fantastic reminder of our military's sacrifices. Wonderfully lit up for the holidays, and this is part of a wonderful walking area. Park a few blocks away, and enjoy a stroll through the downtown area. Totally different but equally enjoyable during the day and at night. It's safe and clean and all times. Bottom line: this is part of why Indianapolis is one of the best kept secret destinations.

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

beautiful, exquisite work, stunning at night. Take time to really look at the entire thing, and sit on the steps and take in the activity around the circle.
