If you like a little history, antiques, ghost stories and real circus family, this is a great tour and home. The restoration is a long work in progress and very interesting. The Ringling brothers circus history is tied with it of course, giving it more life. The tour guide grew up in the circus, so is very invested in the renovation and loves his work. Would recommend this to any history buff or antique lover. We found it fascinating!

Went here as part of a bigger weekend tour. Interesting to hear about Al Ringling's life. The house itself is still going through a lot of renovation but it is interesting to walk through nonetheless.

It was sold to the local Elks Club years ago and now has been bought back. Luckily, they are getting original furniture back into the house. This is a good addition to Baraboo's tourism attractions and it ties in with Circus World.
