John Ringling and Mable Museum of Art (May 19, 09)
We spent a few hours here. It was well worth the time even though I am not interested in any circus. The old props, train, costumes and other memorabilia were quite fascinating. The grounds and the John Ringling Mansion are quite impressive sitting on Sarasota Bay with the city of Sarasota across the bay.
The grounds are lush with banyan trees and rose gardens.
