Monument Circle Tours

The Landmark that Made Indianapolis the "Circle City"

Indiana Landmarks’ free walking tour explores Monument Circle at the heart of Indianapolis, telling the story of the Circle from the original plan— the Governor’s home was supposed to sit in the center—to the scene you see today. You’ll hear about the Monument and the surrounding buildings, with pointers from Indiana Landmarks’ expert guides to fun details you might miss.
