This museum is recognized as one of the most outstanding monuments of the world that symbolizes the history of both the city of Indianapolis as well as the state of Indiana. This is the official monument to the Hoosiers and it served during the hard times of Revolutionary War, The War of 1812, The Mexican War, The Civil War, the Frontiers war and the Spanish American War.
The lovely museum is mainly constructed with oolitic limestone from Romana which is a very rare material to be used in the region and also an expensive one. The museum has a collection of artifacts and sculptures that were either built inside the museum or brought inside. The main artifacts are the collections of “War and Peace”, “The Dying Soldier”, “The Homefront” and the 4 statues at 4 corners of the museum that represents Infantry, Cavalry, Artillery and Navy.

Soldiers And Sailors Monument Reviews & Ratings
This is so worth your time! The view from the top is spectacular and if you can manage the stairs, it's free! Be prepared, the stairs are long and it is not for people out of shape. If you have any doubts, pay the small fee to use the elevator.
Nice historical place in the center on the city. You can pay for elevator, or you can use stairs for free . Stairs are kind if narrow on the top, but doable for average person. View is nice! Definitely worth it.
A great monument inside and out! Yes there is an inside. A giftshop, elevator to the top (only $2/ person), or the option of 330 stairs. Liking a challenge I took the stairs, and it was a challenge. I will make note that I am in NO way claustrophobic, but those walls lean in, meaning smaller staircases as you go. I was ready to be at the top, and the views were unrivaled. 360 views of the whole city. A great experience!
Been through Indy many times, never took the opportunity to visit the city center. This monument was a nice stop. We walked around, read the placards, gawked at the marvelous statue and even went to the top for a quick view. Definitely worth stopping by if you're in town.
I was in Indiana briefly and went for a short walk and the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument stood out to me. The monument is in a wonderful location in the city parking around either on the street or multi level parking is available. The thing that caught my eye with this was you see the full monument when you are either driving or walking towards monument circle. Water fountains around lights on I did see the monument at 7 am but still looked outstanding.
