John Ringling’s true legacy to Sarasota was his vast love of art. In 1925 he and his wife, Mable, built the art museum that took its inspiration from the Renaissance and Baroque palaces and museums of Italy. Located on a 66-acre estate on Sarasota Bay, this one-of-a-kind property also features Mable Ringling’s Rose Garden, Cà d’Zan, the Ringling winter residence and acres of beautifully landscaped grounds overlooking Sarasota Bay.
The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art sits in regal elegance at 5401 Bay Shore Road in Sarasota.
