Indiana sightseeing is absolutely beautiful. We used this place for our wedding ceremony and reception. It is very well maintained and the history of the building is unique. Many of our family and friends said it was the nicest places they have been for a wedding. Caitlin and Alyssa were both great to work with! Both were very helpful and professional. Both ladies helped make our wedding day go smoothly! β€œ- Sara Hartman

β€œI love visiting this monument all year round. I especially enjoy this memorial at Christmas when the lights are on. Over the weekend of the Indy 500, they put on a great light and audio show projected onto the buildings in the downtown area. This show gave the story of the 500, a staple of Indianapolis culture and history. β€œ- Rachel Martin
