" In 1995 the Circus / Popular Arts Collection and Archives consisted of more than 42,000 items on the American circus during its heyday from the first performance in Philadelphia in 1893 to roughly the late 1930s: artifacts, programs, prints, posters and handbills, photographs, and other memorabilia, as well as sound recordings, sheet music, correspondence, scrapbooks of newspaper and magazine clippings, books, videotapes, magazines and professional journals, and unpublished manuscripts. The strength of the collection lies in the extensive rare poster and photograph holdings. Additional items include World War I posters and Impressionist paintings. Various items from the collection are on display in the exhibit galleries, while the archives are available to researchers by appointment. The museum also houses a specialized library devoted to the American circus and popular culture that contains nearly 3,000 titles, including many rare books. Information about the collections and displays is available through two sources: the illustrated booklet The Inner and Outer Worlds of the Circus: Guide to the Hertzberg Circus Collection (1982) , and (2) a video tour of the exhibit areas produced in 1995."
