  • This little museum was well worth the small price. It was a great way to get an overview of the area and has a wide array of information from the early beginnings, including the hotels, springs...  more »
  • The rate is reasonable and there are $2 discount coupons. The circus diorama is the best we have ever seen. It is well worth the visit.
  • If you're visiting the area for the first time, this little gem of a museum is a definite must. We were staying at the West Baden Springs Resort and I was interested in learning more of the area history. I Googled "West Baden history" and this museum popped up. Inexpensive and staffed by a friendly crew, we thoroughly enjoyed learning about the famous waters, glamorous heyday, baseball ties and, especially, the circus that came to town during their off season. There is a wonderful, detailed diorama of circus life from "front of the house" to how the circus travelled, lived, and worked. Tap on the photos to get a rough idea of the intricate detail of just a small portion of the diorama. Even if this isn't your first time, worth a repeat visit!
