Certainly worth a visit if you have the time. But if you have visited other great/old houses, this one is like those. Unfortunately, you need to go all the way to the far end of the property from the Ringling entrance to find out what tour is next available. Then pay for the tour. Then probably wait for that tour.... More

When the Mansion was built the world was different. The Ringlings seem really to have had education and classs and came to Florida to spend their winters. When economies in Europe were suffering, John Ringling was able to acquire much art. Well worth a visit.

Just like going back to the roaring twenties. Amazing place to visit and the grounds are just as amazing as the mansion.

Sitting on the tile veranda overlooking Sarasota Bay helps you imagine life on this gracious estate. The architecture is very unique and the inside does not disappoint. Be sure to take the tour of this amazing piece of real estate while you're at the Ringling!

Walking through this amazing house is worth the price of admission. The amazing craftsmanship and display of wealth from the Roaring Twenties is something to see. Equally interesting is the Ringling's personal rail car which is on display in a nearby building.

It is part of the Ringling Museum, make sure to buy the portion that includes the home with the guide. I have been there in Christmas time and is decorated with trees and music. It is a beautiful home with original furniture of the area.
