The exhibition

Step into the marvellous world of the circus and experience fun props, beautiful costumes, amazing photos and rare footage. The museum displays the life of the circus, the family traditions and the different acts you can find in the circus from fleas to elephants and clowns to acrobats. You can experience some of the greatest artists from the variety scene and circus ring such as Charlie Rivel the clown, whose famous guitar is on display, Truxa the magician whose famous mind-reading trick is revealed, Paulina Schumann and many more.

We want you to explore the exhibition: Press the buttons, open the hatches, play the games and a new world will reveal itself.

For a more fun-filled experience the children can try on some of the costumes in the exhibition or you could try our quiz or circus challenge as a family .
