I am a big kid at heart and have always been known as a clown so I was happy not the greatest but very very interesting how it all got started and continued for so long.

Went in October 2013 while in the dells. Went primarily for the magic show with my wife and 5 & 6 year old daughters. Was there a few years ago in the summer and saw the bigtop circus show which was great. Magic show was pretty good but didnt rival other "big time" acts. However, well worth the admission price. I'm not a carival buff, but was very impressed with their large collection of old circus wagons dating back to the mid 1800's; complete with detailed information on most. Nice scenery in the fall and a good escape from the dells (although only 20 minutes away). One of the most memorable parts of my dells trip. Will go next time to see the Circus show again...

This is an important part of American History - the travelling circuses. For children, it is an eye-opening experience that they cannot get in a classroom. For adults, it is a look back at times before computer games and Smartphones.

It is probably better to go in the summer when they have live acts performing but even in the fall, you get to see a LOT of things from the circus wagons, to historical posters and other memorabilia. A definite must see for the family. Tie this together with the International Crane Foundation and you have a nice weekend trip that is educational and far beyond what the kids will learn in today's public schools.

We went in Sept after the kids were back to school but still had a wonderful time. This is a really stunning exhibit. The various buildings were really interesting, particularly the costume building. The antique wagons were stunning as was the restoration building. Highly recommended.

This has been an annual stop on our annual trip to the Wisconsin Dells. This year we went to the Tristin Crist Magic Show. It was wonderful. Tristin is very good and he is funny. Children of all ages were in the audience and all seemed to be having a great time.

The Circus is held twice a day and is great. Great way to introduce a small child to a circus. One ring and lots of talent. You can easily spend a whole day here with all the activities.
