Circus World Museum has the unique combination of being a national historical landmark, tourist attraction and museum. Original home of the Ringling Bros. Winter quarters, the Museum brings history to life and houses the world's largest collection of restored antique circus parade wagons.

Circus World Museum is open daily year-round except Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve, and New Year's Day. Live circus performances are offered daily during the summer season. CWM offers a wide array of spectacular, educational, fun and unusual exhibits.

The Info Line (and website) provide complete details on admission, field trips and special events.

The Great Circus Parade Festival has been held in Baraboo recently. It’s a spectacular two-hour re-creation of the old-time circus street parades. The wagons, animals and performers ballyhoo their arrival in town – just the way traveling shows did more than a century ago. The event is witnessed each year by thousands of delighted guests of all ages, many of whom travel from great distances to be a part of this one-of-a-kind event!
