  • Impressive site beautiful architecture.lots and lots of steps but it’s well worth the climb. The view is impressive. Was taken back by all the war monuments, certainly worth the trek.

  • I wish I could rate this a 10! It was amazing. So much war history in such a beautiful building. We've traveled and seen a lot of historical sites, but this is my favorite, by far. A great opportunity for kids to "see" the past and for adults to remember. Don't miss out.
  • MUST see! A truly unique and enormous hidden gem in downtown Indianapolis; you will be in awe of this spectacular building! Great place to visit, learn about the history, to see the dedication to the United States military along with its accomplishments and sacrifices. Makes you feel proud to be a Hoosier and an American!
