Ringling Circus Museum Scale: 1:16

The Ringling Circus Museum in Sarasota, Florida, has the world’s largest collection of circus miniatures. One of its exhibits features a 66 foot long display crowded with circus train cars loaded up for their next venue.

SMARTT built the super-realistic background structures that set the stage for this magnificent display. The sheer variety of buildings, as well as the construction types is staggering, as is their size, with some as high as 6 foot tall! Buildings simulating brick, wood, concrete, and other materials are represented.
