    Circus Collections

    The history of the circus comes to life through the vast and varied collections in the Circus Museum. Among the collections are beautifully printed lithographic posters, heralds, costume design drawings and other fine art prints. The Tibbals International Collection contains prints and bills from the sixteenth through twentieth centuries. Circus photographs give a glimpse into the magical world of the traveling show. Singular items such as The Howard Bros. Circus Model, The Greatest Show on Earth Mural, and John and Mable Ringling’s private Pullman car, the Wisconsin, are among the stars of the Circus Museum as are performers’ wardrobes, props, and beautifully carved parade wagons.
