Experience this big-top Sarasota attraction devoted to circus memorabilia, from parade wagons and calliopes to costumes and colorful posters. The grounds also include a classical courtyard, a rose garden, a museum shop, and the historic Asolo Theater - a 19th-century Italian court playhouse that the Ringlings moved to Sarasota in the 1950s. On weekdays, the center offers guided tours of the art museum, house and circus museum from 10:00a.m. to 5:30p.m. While you're waiting for the next tour at the family-friendly Sarasota museum, explore the gardens or have lunch at the Banyan Cafe.
