A friend had recommended visiting and this was a worthwhile excursion to see the museums. There is a tram that takes you to the various places if you have some difficulty walking. Each area is interesting, we did not do the house tour however but you can walk the grounds. Impressive! The miniature circus is amazing.

What a fantastic voyage throughout the history of a great circus. The exhibits are beautiful and detailed along with an amazing description of circus life. A must see!

We visited the museum (free) on a Monday. After the museum we strolled the grounds and had lunch before taking a tour of the 3rd floor of the mansion, followed by the 2nd and 1st floors of the mansion. Our 5-hour visit there was well worth the money and time!
