City Market Catacombs

Explore the amazing beneath the familiar. The Indianapolis City Market and Indiana Landmarks offer guided descents into the City Market Catacombs, a long-hidden ruin beneath City Market’s Whistler Plaza.

These tours explore the Catacombs, a Roman-looking expanse of brick arches beneath the outdoor Whistler Plaza. Along the way, guides share stories of two historic buildings: City Market and Tomlinson Hall. Our Catacombs don’t contain bones or crypts—at least none that we know of—but rather scores of brick barrel-vaulted arches.


Special tours during March 2021.

Regular season:
1st and 3rd Saturday of the month.
