Completely contained in its very own building, the Tibbals Circus Museum captures the excitement and aura of the Circus itself through amazing displays of Grand Calliopes, Brightly Colored Posters from the very beginning, Interactive Props and finally... The Show of Shows! A 44,000-piece Howard Bros. Circus Model that will take your breath away as you walk round and round, or stop your gaze transfixed on a performer in mid act!
