A must see gem in the heart of Indianapolis. Most people just look at the building but the treasures are within. The main chamber is awe inspiring. The museum in the basement is educational and is interesting, even to aloof teenagers.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I visited the Indiana War Memorial and was so pleasantly surprised! Inside is an amazing array of historical artifacts and recreations, each War has it's own section so it was perfect for our group of Korean War veterans! When we arrived at the Korean War area, it prompted stories and reminiscing, loved it!... More

The Indiana War Memorial was very insighting and refreshing. Loved the layout and there was a flower festival with live entertainment. Right near frozen yogurt and a chocolate store. Also not far from Centre Mall.

If in downtown Indy do stop by and peruse for a bit. It is well worth 30 minutes to take in our history and remember those who gave for us.

This monument commands respect and reverence for those who served during the world wars. The city of Indianapolis pays homage to veterans more openly and honorably than any other city I've ever visited - including Washington DC.
