Come one, come all, step right up, and have a ball! Last featured more than a decade ago, Circusville will unleash imaginations as it places children and their families right into the magic of circus life. A dynamic exhibit, Circusville invites a range of visitor-determined experiences depending upon which entrance to the exhibit they choose - one to the center ring, show, and concessions, while the other leads backstage for a behind-the-scenes experience.

The exhibit will be open seven days per week Mon-Thurs from 10 am - 2 pm and Fri-Sun from 10 am - 5 pm via general admission to the Museum. Admissions can be purchased online

Pretend play in a rich environment provides children the opportunity to try out various personas as a means to explore their own personalities. Circusville sets the stage for children to choose to be the star of the show through dress-up or to practice their hand at juggling and balancing on a tightrope. For another look into the whimsy of circus life, they can choose to take on vital roles including ticket takers, hot dog vendors, and more.
