The Big Top is always in town at the Charles Jackson Circus Museum! With a circus collection including Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus memorabilia, this once-private collection of trains, clowns, antique toys, and vintage posters dates back to the 1920s. Part of the Museums of Historic Hopkinsville Christian County family, this museum houses items that Charles Jackson, a Pennyroyal Area Museum founder, collected over his lifetime. With its fun-house mirror and sawdust-covered floor, there’s plenty to amuse and amaze anyone who’s ever loved The Big Top.
