“Get Your Cardio Workout”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Climb the stairs to the observation deck if you can, but there is an elevator for a nominal charge. Bring a water bottle if you hoof it up the 200-something steps!

“Really cool historical marker”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

This is right in the center of town, and they have done a great job of continuing to maintain and develop the surrounding area

It is also really cool that you can see it from several locations around the city

Also a good place to snap some cool pictures

If you visit downtown Indianapolis, you can't miss this. Walk this around for few times and snap few fotos.

“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.
