City Market Catacombs

Descend into one of the city’s most unique underground spaces, the Catacombs beneath Indianapolis City Market’s west plaza, as guides explain its place in downtown history. Tourgoers will not see bones or crypts, but they will enjoy brick-lined views of two historic landmarks: Indianapolis City Market and the cellar of Tomlinson Hall.

Along the way, learn about the rise and fall of Tomlinson Hall and how its loss impacted the local community. Participants will leave with a greater appreciation for Indianapolis City Market and the importance of ongoing historic preservation efforts.

2023 Public Tour Tickets will go on sale April 3.
