Experience. Honor. Remember.

Indiana’s rich military history comes alive as you explore the Indiana War Memorial Museum and see the tattered flag of the 15th Indiana Infantry Regiment, stroll along the lush green space at the Veterans Memorial Plaza or sit intently listening to the stories of bravery at the Medal of Honor Memorial. Experiencing these historic landmarks enables us to honor the generations of Hoosiers who defend freedom around the world.

The Indiana War Memorials Foundation is proud to support the museum, monuments and memorials that form the Indiana War Memorial Plaza Historic District—a National Historic Landmark District that is also on the National Register of Historic Places. No other city in the United States maintains as many acres dedicated to honoring veterans. Only Washington D.C. has more monuments dedicated to veterans and military conflicts. These historic treasures give us a concrete and meaningful way to ensure that the sacrifices of Hoosier veterans are remembered forever.

Virtual Tour

The Indiana War Memorials Foundation is raising funds for the creation of a special interactive virtual tour of the Indiana War Memorial Plaza Historic District and the Indiana War Memorial Museum, providing the opportunity for every Hoosier can take part in the learning and honoring the valor, history and sacrifice of Hoosier veterans in every conflict since the American Revolution. This robust virtual tour will serve as an online destination for those who cannot attend in person.

These funds will help us finalize the exterior tour of the properties and expand the tour inside the Indiana War Memorial. Help the Foundation’s mission to support the Indiana War Memorials Commission in honoring the valor, history, and sacrifice of Hoosier veterans.
