Museum, Gift Shop, Observation Deck
It's huge! Beautiful centerpiece to downtown Indy.
Prime people watching. New public library installation and some great parklets
Very pretty. If you're willing to be in a small elevator or walk 32 flights of stairs for a view go for it.
Awesome Monument in a cool circle.
Lovely spot. Recommend grabbing a bite to eat nearby and sitting on the steps and people watching.
Take the steps for some serious exercise, though beware it's tight and quite claustrophobic, especially near the top. But it pays off with a lovely 360 view of the city.
Hard to capture it in one photo. Try putting your iPhone in pano mode but hold it so you scan it up and down. You'll get a long tall photo you can crop.

I recommend paying the $2 for the elevator, lots of steps. ;-) The monument itself is very impressive.
Outstanding display during Superbowl 2012
The monument that gave the name to the Circle City. Be sure to climb the stairs to the observation deck.
LOVE the you are beautiful sculptures!!
As of August 23, 2011 this monument is closed for construction. Won't be opened until November 2011.
If you are claustrophobic do not take the stairs to the top. It gets smaller and tighter as you go up. On stair 323 I freaked out and almost passed out. So yeah.. Take the elevator! :)
One of the best times of the to hit circle. A must to check out the lights on Monument Circle.
Do not take the stairs.
There are pretty horses here to go pet when they aren't out on carriage rides.
If you are looking for a place to sit down, have lunch, or just relax, this is the place to go in Indy during the day. Grab an ice cream at South Bend Chocolate Factory while you are at it.
Colts vs Taxans tonite... Just stopped by to see BLUE :D
Great for Halloween...Can you find the lady statue on the monument that is crying? Legend has it that a man jumped to his death off of the monument and the tears were seen soon after.
Saturday nights awesome for watching hot rodding
Sit down on the steps, take in the sights. :)
This monument was formally dedicated in 1902 after a parade of flags with many veterans of battle.In 1918 there was a museum added underground that has a collection of Civil War artifacts.
Veterans and Military can take the elevator to the top for free. Thank you for your service!
