"Indiana War Memorial Museum" War Memorial Plaza Tip by Toughluck

War Memorial Plaza, Indianapolis: 8 reviews and 23 photos


Even if you're not interest in the military history of the nation from it's founding to the present, you have to go inside this museum. It's the huge stone tower in the park, on Michigan Ave. You feel as if you're walking into a military bunker from WWI (1913-1918) or WWI (1939-1946). Solid stone, many feet thick surround you in an eerie silence. The halls are silent as there are few visitors. The cool air seeps into your clothes. Try it in August, it's quite refreshing.

Once in side, the galleries run around the building with mementos, artifacts and stories of the men and women who have served in all the wars this nations been in. You'll not find the large guns or aircraft as they don't fit into the building, but you'll find many other interesting things.
