Circus World Museum losing "Bell Wagon" exhibit

BARABOO, WI (WTAQ) - The Circus World Museum in Baraboo is about to lose one of its most prized exhibits.

The Ringling Brothers “Bell Wagon” will leave in mid-September, after being on display for almost 30 years.

The Bell Wagon was the first stylish wagon built for the Ringling Brothers Circus in 1891. Besides the wagon, related costumes and floats have been on display since 1984 at Baraboo.

They’re owned by Feld Entertainment of Florida, which recently consolidated its operations. It’s now re-evaluating its circus collection, which is spread at 7 sites around the country.

Feld plans to use some of the items to celebrate 50 years of its ownership of the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus.
