If you love architecture then this is the building to visit. I've never been inside it but plan to in the future. The outside is stunning and if you have a bright blue sky you will get some wonderful photos.

Gorgeous cathedral. Tours by older volunteers- so be prepared to move slowly. Ball room under construction so it was disappointing to not see it. Only one door open- froze while trying got locate it! We walked form Library, but there is parking at the cathedral.

Can we go inside the Cathedral (on our own) on a Saturday... or can you only go inside with a tour?

I agree with taking the tour. We went inside and they were willing to give us a tour right then and there!
How long should I plan for at this location?

Agree ... 1.5 to 2 hours is a good time-frame. Enjoy.
Pouvons-nous visiter la cathédrale. Est-ce payant ? Quels jours et les heures de visite ? Nous serons à Indianapolis en Juin 2016. Merci d'avance.

The Cathedral is open from 10:00 a.m-2:00 p.m. You can only tour it with a guide. Hope this helps!
