America's Top Roadside Attractions
Circus World Museum
The railroads of America were once alive with lions, tigers, and elephants housed in gilded circus wagons touring the small, whistle-stop towns of the heartland. When winter came, Ringling’s big top folded and decamped to a home base in Baraboo, WI. Not far from the Wisconsin Dells, the Circus World Museum brings a lost era back to life with more than 200 circus wagons, original costumes, posters of mustached ladies and fat men, as well as daily circus performances in summer.
