The Museum of Art-Founded by John Ringling (one of the original five circus kings of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus) the Museum of Art is sure to offer you a rare look at some of history’s timeless masterpieces. Comprised of both personal and donated sculptures and paintings from well-renowned artists we’re sure the Museum of Art will capture your attention.
Ca’d’Zan Mansion- Comprised of 56 rooms, five floors, and an 81-foot Belvedore tower, the Ca’d’Zan mansion is a breathtaking architectural tribute to the style knows as “Venetian Gothic”. Armed with the design of Mable Ringling architect Dwight James Baum and builder Owen Burns built this incomparable palatial palace in 1925 at a cost of $1.5 million.
Circus Museum- This museum was the first in the country to document the unique and rich history of the circus. Visitors from our Bradenton Hampton Inn Hotel can view everything from sideshow banners to world’s largest miniature circus. And don’t forget to visit The Wisconsin, the private rail car of John and Mable Ringling.
Grounds and Gardens- Mable’s Rose Garden is home to more than 1200 rose plants that were planted between 1867 and 2002. The 27,225 square foot garden was finished in 1913 and continues to be a favorite amongst guests at our Sarasota Florida Hampton Inn.
