While you may think of the circus — and who wouldn’t? — as the Greatest Show on Earth, there’s a whole world of tiny circus people and animals and tents sure to make you lean in to glass showcases for a closer look.  It all happens at The Ringling’s Circus Museum in Sarasota, Florida.  In one part, you can check out what’s under the Big Top at Howard Bros. Circus Model but don’t miss the Tibbals Learning Center where archives and tiny replicas of circuses around the world will thrill you to peanuts.  Just goes to show — tiny things can bring great joy!
