    In 1948 the Ringlings Museum of Circus was established in the original garage on the propety.You feel as if you are behind the circus scenes:costumes,props,circus wagons! I liked mini-circus it looked like a doll play house,but every single figure moved & talked!My daugter liked just because of kid's room they have over there at the museum.They have these funny mirrors that make your reflection different from different poin-thiner or fatter,shorter or taller!
