Indiana Wheelchair Accessible Destinations and Resources

From golden grain fields to surging city life, Indiana wheelchair accessible destinations and resources offer experiences to travelers of all abilities.

Known as the ‘Land of the Indians’ and the ‘Hoosier State’, Indiana is quite literally the crossroads of America with respect to square miles of roadways. Indiana is home to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and other sports-minded opportunities. Here are just a few of the outdoor and indoor wheelchair accessible destinations that draw travelers across the country.

Outdoor Wheelchair Accessible Destinations

Indiana’s outdoor wheelchair accessible destinations feature some of the most exciting sports opportunities you’ll find anywhere. Football and racing fans will find some exceptionally inviting opportunities. Indiana is also home to some of the most storied colleges and universities in the nation.


Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Hall of Fame Museum. An American mecca for auto-racing enthusiasts, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway offers hours of excitement when you take in a day of racing preceded by a visit to the Speedway's Hall of Fame Museum, both of which are wheelchair accessible. The Formula One speedway is a global draw on race day—particularly the legendary Indianapolis 500. The museum showcases around 75 high-octane Formula One race cars, including the Marmon "Wasp," which won the inaugural Indianapolis 500 in 1911.


Fort Wayne Children's Zoo, Fort Wayne. This zoo, considered the best in Indiana, has a five-star rating on the popular travel site TripAdvisor.com. They call it a 'children's' zoo, but zoos are a good time for everyone. Monkeys alone can keep us entertained for hours, and the accessible Fort Wayne zoo will introduce you to de Brazza's monkeys, Colobus monkeys, Capuchin monkeys, swamp monkeys, and other fascinating primates.


Holiday World, Santa Claus. How can anyone pass up a day at an amusement park like this? Their Accessibility Guide was compiled with the assistance of Indiana's Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center, so you can be sure Holiday World in Santa Claus, Indiana and many of its rides accommodate wheelchair users with safety and pleasure. Some of the rides' names celebrate a particular holiday, like Turkey Whirl, Reindeer Games, Liberty Launch, and HallowSwings.

Indoor Wheelchair Accessible Destinations

From museums to art houses to centers of religion, Indiana’s indoor wheelchair accessible destinations are virtual origins of culture that aren’t to be missed. You’ll find a host of travel and vacation experiences that are adapted to a variety of unique needs and abilities.


Mind Tripping Show, Indianapolis. Billed as the "#1 Comedy Mind Reading Act in the Nation," the Mind Tripping Show is a absolutely uncommon way to spend an evening. The mind-reading duo of Christian and Katalina will astound you with mind reading, psychological illusions, mental surprises and, of course, comedy. Their wheelchair accessible, cabaret-style show has entertained audiences in Europe, South America, across the U.S., in casinos, on cruise ships, and for corporate events.


Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center, Bloomington. Broaden your horizons and immerse yourself in the heart and soul of other cultures at this unique center. Devoted to preserving Tibetan culture and religion, the Center was founded in 1979 by a former Tibetan monk who has collected Tibetan works of art that include sculptures and paintings of Buddha, Bodhisattvas (enlightened beings), and other historical figures. The buildings are wheelchair accessible, and guided tours are available.


The Museum of Miniature Houses, Carmel. Archaeology shows that miniatures have been around for more than 4,000 years. They've made appearances throughout history, and miniatures are still being created today. There's just something we love about small-size copies of familiar things. Open Wednesday through Sunday, the accessible museum celebrates "small" in a big way.
