Welcome to The Ringling!
The world has changed in the blink of an eye and we hope that you and your families are safe and well.
Even as much of what we know is disrupted, I am hopeful as I look out my window onto the beautiful campus that is the legacy of John and Mable Ringling. Nevertheless, it is quiet here these days, and your presence is missed, a reminder of both these challenging times and how critical you are to the life of the museum.
From its earliest days, The Ringling has known challenges and we have overcome them—together. We know it won't be long before visitors will again fill our incredible galleries and green spaces, the laughter of our ROAR! children will echo in the library, brides and grooms will say “I do” at our magnificent Ca’ d’Zan and our curators will lead enlightening gallery talks. Even now, the work of the Museum continues, less visible perhaps, but true to the indomitable spirit that is the legacy of the Ringlings and is manifested daily by our dedicated staff.
Until we are together again, I invite you to explore all of the offerings that have been created to engage, educate, and delight you. The Museum from Home page on the website features virtual tours, eMuseum, and a myriad of activities—for both kids and adults—that can be enjoyed from the convenience of your home. Please keep engaged with our social media channels, including Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and LinkedIn. We would love to hear from you.
The distance between us is necessary but merely physical, for I know that The Ringling is always in your hearts and I thank you so much for your continued support.
