A free exhibit of circus models, art, photography, and memorabilia. At the heart of the exhibit is the Bex Bros. Circus, a complete circus scene comprised of thousands of scale models depicting every element of a traditional circus, including sideshows, clowns, trapeze artists, and animal acts. Also on display are circus posters, circus art by Maine artists Alan Fishman, Nancy Morgan-Barnes, and the late Waldo Peirce, and circus images from the museum's own collections of historic photography.
