“A MUST SEE IN INDY!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

This is THE CIRCLE in the very heart of Indy. This is the middle of all of the action. There is always something going on at the Circle.. Indy has a very walkable downtown. People are so used to seeing the monument that they forget that there is a nice museum inside it. It is dedicated to the Civil War. Miss Victory is a statue at the top of the monument and she is facing South. Again this is a MUST SEE in Indy. Enjoy!!

What an awe-inspiring monument. I loved the location and the sculptures were outstanding. A definite must see in downtown Indianapolis.

“Awesome 360 view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

It's a great stop on a sunny day when you're staying downtown. Easy walk from most downtown hotels. The museum is interesting and well laid out. The view is spectacular of all Indy including the capitol, stadium and World War Memorial. It's also very good exercise though the steps get narrow. Free to climb to the top...or take the elevator for $2 per person. It is a very small elevator so claustrophobics beware. There is a small gift shop at the base but, alas, no lapel pins. And such an easy design to use! Take an hour and take in the view.

“A striking monument worth a visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This monument is one of the more impressive structures I have visited. Right in the heart of downtown, with the surrounding buildings build with a curved facade to match the circle monument. Worth the trip to the top as well - I always return to this place every visit!

“Free & Great View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

It's free to go to the top and get a great view of the cIty. If you choose to take the elevator it costs $2/person. The memorial is about as tall as the statue of liberty and the surrounding area is very nice.

It has a gift shop.
