International Clown Hall of Fame

102 4th Avenue
Baraboo, WI 53913


While there are several circuses that remain in operation, there is only 1 museum dedicated to the art of clowning: The International Clown Hall of Fame and Research Center. That’s it, just one. And the ICHOF’s future is at stake.

For four years now the International Clown Hall of Fame and Research Center has been operating in Baraboo, WI, hometown of the Ringling family and home to the original Ringling Bros. Circus winter quarters.
