Feel like a kid again with real circus performances, the Tiger Adventure demonstrations, “Nothing But Nonsense” comedy/variety shows, Kids Interactive Circus performances, and “Shake, Rattle and Toot” circus instrument concerts. Make a connection to this amazing art form with high stepping horses, real elephants, two zany clowns, dogs, goats and a pig named Velma, jugglers, unicyclists, and daredevil acrobats. Located in Baraboo at the National Landmark Site where the Ringling Bros. built an empire, spreading joy throughout this great nation. Admission includes all shows, exhibits, and the world’s most dazzling collection of original wood-carved circus wagons; and all for one low price. Spring and fall seasons offer 7 buildings of colorful exhibits, minus the live shows and animals, but at a significant price reduction, with ample time to enjoy and absorb the exiting treasures that await. No matter if it’s your first visit or your hundredth… there’s always something wonderful to discover at Wisconsin’s National Treasure… Circus World, in Baraboo!
