Step right up! Join the circus! Juggle, walk on stilts, spin plates, walk the balance beam, show off your strength. Put on a show for your friends and family! Pretend to be a vet for small circus animals, dress up like a clown, sell tickets and refreshments. “Under The Big Top” is all about the magic of the circus, the imagination of children, and taking on new challenges.
Presented by the Des Moines Children’s Museum and the Clive Festival!
About Des Moines Children’s Museum
Des Moines Children’s Museum is a 501(c)(3) organization started in the spring of 2017 by two local parents who saw a need for a children’s museum in the Des Moines area. We visited over 30 local events in the summer of 2017 with our first traveling exhibit, Let’s Play Outside! We were met with such overwhelming community enthusiasm over the summer that we opened our first location at Valley West Mall in the fall of 2017. We are currently 100% volunteer operated as we prepare to find our permanent home.
