    This was a really neat tour. It was after their summer season so the acts were closed but all the exhibits and buildings were open. It was cool to see how Ringling Brothers got their start as well as how they ended up with Barnum & Bailey as well. The staff was awesome especially Deb at the front desk. She was very helpful and even heated up my chicken noodle soup for me.

    Amazing museum filled with circus displays and restored circus wagons. The best part is the circus performances held twice daily May through August. The elephants, tigers, horses, clowns, and dare-devil acts are fantastic!!! Tip: purchase a WI State Historical Society annual membership to get into all of the interesting sites. Summertime they have food vendors or you can leave & reenter same day for lunch (or nap) break.

    I didn't know what to expect but I'm so happy I went with my family. The history of the circus is very intriguing and and extensive. Not only is there multiple performances within but they teach you a lot about their longstanding trade. I would go again next summer.

    Great place to visit. Everyone was so friendly and lots to see for both young and old. Enjoyed the live acts and the many buildings and exhibits were very interesting. It's wonderful that the circus heritage is being protected for future generations to enjoy.

    This is a "must visit" if you enjoy the circus and the history of the circus. Tours and many many performances. I got to spend half a day there and need at least one more to see it all.
