The Ringling is simply a wonderful place to spend the day. It's a combination of a wonderful art museum with it's own great standing art collection as well as traveling exhibits, a fascinating and educational circus museum and the magnificent former winter home of Mable and John Ringling perched over the bay. To get the most our of your visit, try to go with one of the docents through the museum ---well worth the effort. Also, you can tour the Ca D'Zan Mansion for an extra fee and that is definitely worth doing. So much history there. The grounds are magnificent with huge banyon trees, a rose garden and lots of paths to stroll. You can even sit on the patio by the bay and watch boats sail by and let your eyes feast on the view. The Treviso restaurant by the museum shop is not to be missed. Great food in an cozy setting. A fabulous day at the Ringling.
