History of The Ringling

Renowned circus owner John Ringling and his wife Mable began construction on the palatial estate that would be called Ca’ d’Zan. An avid collector, John then built a 21 gallery museum on the property which was modeled after the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy, featuring his collection of Old Masters, and Greek and Roman structures. The museum opened to the public in 1931, and upon his passing, left it to the state of Florida.

Today, the recently revitalized museum joins Ca’ d’Zan, The Circus Museum, and the Historic Asolo Theater.
