Circus World Museum


Why It’s a Must-Do

Life’s a circus — especially in Baraboo, home to the original Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey show. Though they left in 1918, some of their structures, wagons, and memories are still here at Circus World. A full day of spectacular circus shows plus hospitality, history, and horseplay; it’s the greatest show on earth for one low admission price.

When to Visit

Circus World is closed in the winter. But that just means we’re stocking the big top and getting our topsy-turvies just right for next season. Circus World  will reopen in March and run through fall. See the Hours of Operation above for a breakdown of dates and times.
