This is rural Indiana, so that must be a farm, right? With cows and chickens? Nope. Try tigers and elephants. This is the International Circus Hall of Fame, celebrating famous clowns, animal acts, acrobats, owners, and showmen and preserving antique circus wagons and steam-powered calliopes. Retired performing animals live here year-round and strut some of their old stuff—along with various human acts—in daily shows put on from April to October.
