Monument Circle Tours

Indiana Landmarks’ walking tour explores Monument Circle at the heart of Indianapolis, telling the story of the Circle’s origin—it was designed to host the Governor’s home in the center—and the scene you see today. You’ll hear about Soldiers and Sailors Monument and the surrounding buildings, with pointers from Indiana Landmarks’ expert guides to fun details you might miss.

Tours begin at the South Bend Chocolate Company store. No tour if it’s raining cats and dogs.

Monument Circle

Our beloved Monument Circle is the true heart of Downtown Indianapolis. Often filled with life on the lunch hour or during one of the many events that happen year round, it's truly a must-see for anyone visiting the Circle City.Check out the observation deck at the top of Soldiers and Sailors Monument.  Admission is Free if you walk the stairs or $1 to take the elevator. The Soldiers & Sailors Monument also houses the Colonel Eli Lilly Civil War Museum on the lower level and a small gift shop at promenade level.
