AL. Ringling built his home in Baraboo when his family’s circus was at its peak. In 2013, we decided to open the mansion to the public. Some visit this historic site to take in the beautiful, Edwardian architecture, while others want to learn more about one of America’s most famous showmen.

In order to keep the Ringling legacy alive, we have hosted grand parties and weddings for people from all over the country, and are looking forward to opening the AL. Ringling Brewing Company in 2019! But it doesn’t matter if you’re here for a tour or an event because on every visit you’ll be met with the kind and quirky enthusiasm you’d expect from a place this unique.

  • Walked around the outside and really admired the incredible architecture. Took a peak inside the bar as well! The house was not open but worth it to look at the outside.  more »
