This is a Classic Wisconsin Dells Experience:
Baraboo was home to The Ringling Bros. Circus from 1884 thru 1918, and during those thirty-four years the operation grew to become the largest circus enterprise the world has ever known. Although the Ringlings left in 1918, many of their original structures survived. In 1954, Circus World Museum, Inc. began raising funds and collecting artifacts. On July 1, 1959, Circus World opened with two buildings, six wagons, and some circus memorabilia. It was deeded to the Wisconsin Historical Society. Circus World now owns eight of the ten surviving Ringling buildings, all of them having achieved National Historic Landmark stature.
