Owner description: Ca' d'Zan is one of the venues at The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art. The home of the circus king and his wife, a couple from humble mid-western origins, Ca’ d’Zan stands as a testament to the American Dream of the Roaring Twenties. Inspired by and designed in the Venetian Gothic style of the palazzos that ring the Venice canals, this dazzling palatial mansion perfectly captures the splendor and romance of the Italy the Ringlings so loved. Please visit ringling.org for Ca' d'Zan tour times and admission info.

Not much inside the main house, but the miniature circus adjascent to this site is well worth the price of admission. The art museum barely ranks. But there's not a lot to do inside in Sarasota, so this must explain what others see in this site. But the Miniature Circus stuff is not to be missed. The exhibits of major circus pieces are not exceptionall; visit Circus World in Baraboo Wisconsin for those.

A beautiful place inside and out. Full of great history of the Ringlings. I like to sit on the huge veranda and watch the dolphins play in the bay and pretend I live here :)

A nice place to visit once. The story of the Ringling Circus is interesting and the house (mansion) is lovely, too.
