If you only see race cars when you hear about Indianapolis, think again. Not only is this Midwestern capital city known for the Indianapolis 500, it’s also home to the largest children’s museum, two professional sports franchises and one of the country’s most acclaimed museum sculpture parks. And while you don’t need to hear in order to experience the excitement at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, we’ve compiled a listing of other attractions with accessibility for those who are deaf or hard of hearing.
