Indiana War Memorial and Museum

The Indiana War Memorial Plaza Historic District includes a 30,000 square foot museum complete with military equipment and artifacts, three parks, four fountains, and 25 acres of monuments, statues, and sculptures in the heart of downtown Indianapolis. No state has a city with more monuments dedicated to veterans than Indiana's capital, and no city in the country maintains more acreage honoring veterans than Indianapolis. It is also home to the American Legion National Headquarters, which is the largest veterans' organization in the world. The IWM Commission operates these facilities in pursuit of its primary mission: to commemorate the valor and sacrifice of the United States Armed Forces and to honor Hoosier veterans and Indiana's role in the nation's conflicts.
  Every Sunday, Wednesday–Saturday, 9 a.m.–5 p.m.

Indiana War Memorial and Museum

The Indiana War Memorial has three main floors. On the upper level is the breathtaking Shrine Room. The main floor houses exhibit space, the administrative offices, two meeting rooms, and the Pershing Auditorium. The bottom floor contains a free military museum that portrays the history of Indiana's gallant veterans from the Battle of Tippecanoe, through the several wars in which we have been engaged, to the present.
