This exhibit examines the oft controversial public spectacle of circuses and its relation to the development of entertainment in New York City. Kids can ogle more than 200 artifacts—including posters, photographs and costumes—that illustrate the stories of figures such as John Bill Ricketts, who staged the first circus in New York, and the legendary P. T. Barnum. All ages.
