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.Plan your visit to Al.

Al. Ringling Mansion reviews
The front is the mansion with a tour, didn't know Ringlings history was really interesting. The back is the pub/bar, with great, beer and wine. Really good prices, the big pretzel was awesome... more »
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 »
It is so wonderful that it is being saved. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. This is so worth the trip.
Very enjoyable tour and a must see for anyone visiting the Baraboo area.
