About This Event
See the Circle Through New Eyes
NOTE: To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, the number of available tickets will be limited to allow for appropriate social distancing. All tour participants must wear a face covering over their mouth and nose at all times during a tour.
Monument Circle is the symbolic center of Indianapolis, popular with locals and tourists alike. But there’s much more to the Circle’s story than meets the eye.
You’ll explore the Soldiers & Sailors Monument and encircling landmarks, where guides will help you unravel the stories behind architecture and symbolism. Indianapolis visitors will experience one of the nation’s most beautiful public monuments and residents will gather fun tidbits to share with future guests.
The majority of this half-mile walking tour takes place outside. Tours run rain or shine, so wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather. It is accessible for people using wheelchairs.
