Wheelchair Accessible Attractions in Nebraska

Finding wheelchair accessible attractions may feel like a hassle. From zoos to parks, Nebraska has a lot to offer those who are wheelchair-bound. Here are three attractions in Nebraska that are not only a must-see but wheelchair accessible:

Omaha's Henery Doory Zoo

Located in Omaha, Nebraska, the Henery Doory Zoo is one of the top attractions in the state. The zoo offers many ways to explore including a train, Skyfari, and a tram. All rides are weather dependent, though, and will not operate if there is rain, snow, ice or if the temperature will not reach 50 degrees by 1 p.m. and the Skyfari will not operate if there are high winds. The zoo even offers an aquarium where you can walk on the bottom of the ocean and come nose to nose with sea turtles and sharks in the 70-foot shark tunnel. Other exhibits to explore are the polar regions, temperate oceans, coral reefs, and the Amazon, along with desert regions and a Madagascar expedition. 

Plan your visit here

Pioneer Village

The Pioneer Village, located in Minden, Nebraska, comprises 28 buildings on 20 acres housing over 50,000 irreplaceable items of historical value. At the village, you can experience a Pony Express Relay Station, Original Elm Creek Stockade, Historic Country Church, Historic General Store, Historic Sod House, One Room School House, Antique Toy Collection, and a Blacksmith Shop. 

Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum 

Located in Ashland, Nebraska, the SAC&A Museum offers a number of exhibits including a flight simulator.  Upon your visit, you can see bombers from World War Two including photos from the war, a Remember the Fallen memorial and spacecrafts, including two modules from two Apollo missions and an X-38 Crew Return Vehicle. Aircraft exhibits include a B-36J Peacemaker, a B-57E Intruder, an F-101B Voodoo and an F-102A Delta Dagger. 

I have to be honest, I went to the Zoo and the SAC&A Museum when I was a kid and it is one of my fondest memories. It was so cool to see all of the animals and experience the amazon. As a child who was way too into space and science, you can bet I had way too much fun at the SAC&A Museum! With my strong recommendation for those two attractions, this completes my list. Stay tuned for more!
