This is a beautiful and very symbolic monument. Looking at the figures and different wars and explanations of what was represented was so powerful. We didn't have a lot of time but it would be well worth doing more investigation and seeking greater understanding.

For those who don't know, Indiana is second only tomWashington, D.C. For number of military memorials. This one is well-maintained - breathtaking when you first walk in the door! The museum is very interesting and is well worth visiting, as is just a stroll around the memorial.

Spectacular. It is obvious much time and thought went into each exhibit. I have spent hours in there and never grow tired of learning more about the city or our wars.

The building is so august and so stately. The interior is a must. The design and exhibits show how those who died for their country should be memorialized. If you had a relative or friend who was in the armed forces, alive or an ancestor this would make you proud.

Such an impressive place and a learning experience for me in my 30s. And my boys 6 and 11 enjoyed it as well. The flag room will leave you lost for words such a awesome sight and memorable experience! It's free but I would definitely pay to go again!!

The downtown area of Indianapolis is a great area to view some very unique architectural structures. The Indiana War Memorial is a great building to view. It is so dominating in the downtown region, to me it dominates the many new high rise buildings of the downtown region of Indianapolis! I have not toured around this grand structure, but on... More

This is a nice walk around. Take the elevator to the top for two bucks. Observe 360 around the city. It is about 20 feet shorter that the Statue of Liberty.

I've been twice now. It's well done and impressive. It's free but only open Wed-Sun 0900-1700. You can easily spend a few hours here. Don't forget to look at the auditorium if it's open and the shrine up the stairs. If you have any respect and honor for the women and men who have and are serving in the armed... More

Impressive to see the size and scale of a museum dedicated to war victims but marred by the homeless military around it. The USA has a funny way of looking after its veterans. No object to money to make a monument but homeless Vietnam vets are to starve on the street nearby....we gave sizeable donations as my partner is ex... More
