The home of the circus king and his wife, a couple from humble mid-western origins, Ca’ d’Zan stands as a testament to the American Dream of the Roaring Twenties. Inspired by and designed in the Venetian Gothic style of the palazzos that ring the Venice canals, this dazzling palatial mansion perfectly captures the splendor and romance of the Italy the Ringlings so loved. To honor its owner, they named it Ca’ d’Zan, “House of John”, in the dialect of their beloved Venice.
In this Kid's Quest, we'll learn about two different floors assembled from small pieces -- one is a tile mosaic, and the other John Ringling had constructed from leftover materials. Bet you didn't know such interesting things were under your feet!
John and Mable Ringling’s yacht, the Zalophus, was the height of luxury during their time! Join our Kids Quest to hear tales of the Zalophus and play a boat-themed game.
