Not only can take an elevator (or walk) to the top you should check out the free hidden museum under the monument!

The Soldiers & Sailors Monument houses the Colonel Eli Lilly Civil War Museum on the lower level, as well as a Gift Shop and Observation Level. From the Observation Level, visitors have a 360 degree view of the city skyline from 275 feet up. The Observation Level can be reached by climbing 331 steps or riding an elevator 90% of the distance and climbing the remaning 31 steps.

The Museum and Gift Shop are open from 10:30 AM - 5:30 PM, Wednesday - Sunday (between May and October) or Friday - Sunday (between November and April). The Monument is closed on all National and State holidays except for Memorial Day and Veterans Day.

Please note that when outside temperatures reach higher than 95 degrees, the Observation Level is unavailable due to safety concerns.

Really nice place for a "stairs challenge". Don't worry you can take the elevator if you want. Once up, enjoy the view of downtown Indy to any direction possible.

The Soldiers and Sailors Monument is at the epicenter of the historic Monument Circle, the heart of Indianapolis, and the very center of Indiana.

Esto esta en el centro de la Capital de Indiana. El monumento fue levantado en honor a los Hoosier quien fueron los veteranos de la Revolucion Americana. Alrededor del monumento hay varias tiendas, resturantes y cafetines.
