Monument Circle Tours
Indiana Landmarks’ walking tour explores Monument Circle at the heart of Indianapolis, telling the story of the Circle’s origin—it was designed to host the Governor’s home in the center—and the scene you see today. You’ll hear about Soldiers and Sailors Monument and the surrounding buildings, with pointers from Indiana Landmarks’ expert guides to fun details you might miss.
When? 10:00 a.m. every Friday and Saturday, May-October (no tour if it’s raining cats and dogs).
Where? Tour departs from the South Bend Chocolate Company, 30 Monument Circle, located in the southwest quadrant of Monument Circle.
Cost? Free. Please note: groups of 10 or more must schedule a private group tour.
Reservations? No reservations required except for groups of 10 or more.
Parking? There are many convenient parking garages in close proximity to the Circle, in the flanking blocks on Pennsylvania, Illinois, and Washington streets. The most convenient garage might be Circle Centre, entering from Washington Street just west of Meridian Street. You can use the escalator/elevator from the parking garage that rises into Carson Pirie Scott. Exit the doors from the men’s department onto Washington and walk the short block north on Meridian to the Circle. South Bend Chocolate Co. is in the southwest quadrant of Monument Circle.
Available at other times? Yes, we’ll be happy to conduct a tour on the day and time of your choosing for a fee. We charge $5 per person, with a $50 minimum charge, so it’s best to have a group.
