Come and Join the Circus!

An early Wisconsin circus owner’s life size image will greet our 2019 summer visitors wishing to experience some old time circus fun this season. Our new circus “hole” photo board will help you capture memories of your museum visit when you are photographed with your head in the lion’s mouth. Inside, several stretched canvases depicting a 1909 circus in Shullsburg will aid in illustrating stories about early circuses. Circus videos will be available for viewing. The tour will include stories of the significance of circuses to early miners while you are underground. Finally, before departing you will want to visit our gift shop as we have added circus animal head bands, slap on bracelets and face masks to our inventory. Additionally, cotton candy, animal crackers, and large candy suckers can be reasonably purchased along with our standard items of lead, gold and silver suspended in bottles, geodes and trilobites.
