Circus Hall of Fame

3076 Peru Circus Lane
Peru, IN 46970


The International Circus Hall of Fame is located on the old circus winter quarters in Peru, Indiana. These quarters are where circuses of the past wintered until they left in the spring for a new circus season.

We are one of 55 National Historic Landmarks in the State of Indiana.

The "Circus Greats" enshrined in the Circus Hall of Fame, along with the colorful posters, wagons, models, and exhibits, bring the circus to life.

Also on exhibit is a miniature replica of the 1934 Hagenbeck Wallace Circus, complete with all the animals, performers, and even the Circus parade!
