“A beautiful tribute inside and out”
During the early part of the twentieth century, a new conception of design was emerging, called City Beautiful Movement. The existing buildings on the plaza, punctuated by the building of the Indiana War Memorial provided a formal setting with classical designs that reflected the concepts of the City Beautiful Movement. The War Memorial is inspired by a neoclassical design. It is similar to the Greek architecture of the fifth century. It is a square shrine structure with a pyramidal dome, and has Ionic columns. Its formally designed open spaces and its heroic monuments and statuary all contribute to its grandeur.
They have done this museum well. You have to go upstairs and see the room upstairs, my words do no justice all I can say is I am not a history buff, I do respect all USA military. I just stood and sat in awe and reflection. If you can't do steps they have an elevator but you have to ask. The rest of the museum is put together very well.
We stopped with the kids while passing thru Indiana and it is indeed free and such an amazing museum that goes on and on-it’s breathtaking. Parking was metered but close.
