The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art has an internationally recognized collection of more than 10,000 objects, dating from ancient to contemporary times. These include the 1936 bequest of John Ringling, which is comprised of Cà d'Zan, the winter residence of John and Mable Ringling, and the Museum of Art. Later additions to the estate, from the time of the Museum's first director, Chick Austin, include the Asolo Theater and the Ringling Circus Museum. The Ringling Museum's online database currently includes highlights from the collection. More objects will be made available as the Museum's digitization project proceeds.
