  • Beautiful memorial to our veterans especially of the WW1 era. Remarkable recreated scenes and memorabilia of wars past and present. I was in total awe! Best of all admission is free. Not to be missed, a must see, may be boring somewhat for children under 10 years of age.
  • They have a cobra attack helicopter inside !!!!This is one of the best places in Indianapolis. I love it here !! Beautiful architecture never crouded. Great exhibits !! ITS FREE !! never a bad place to spend a few hours looking at some weapons and history of the state.
  • This is a short walk from monument circle. There are nice views from the top of the steps and some nice prices of art in the nearby parks. Definitely a beautiful place to sit and enjoy a Midwest spring day.
  • This place is a great hidden secret in Indianapolis. There is a small but good museum in the basement and an incredible memorial located upstairs. A great tribute to WWI.
  • Great historical monument. One of Indy's best kept secrets hidden right under our noses! Beautiful, free memorial museum complete with a humvee, Huey helicopter and so many authentic artifacts from Indiana and America's rich history.
