Welcome to circusmuseum.nl, a future image bank with posters, photos and prints from the Bijzondere Collecties University of Amsterdam, the largest collection of circus memorabilia in Europe. This site is under construction in 2018. The database and previews of the posters can still be accesed via the search engine of the theatercollection.

In the mean time we would kindly like to draw your attention to the publication The Best of Best, The unique circuscollection of Jaap Best, richly illustrated by posters and other images from the collection. The book finishes with a chapter about the Circuscollection and is available via the webshop of Bijzondere Collections.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact us via TINdepot_ub@uva.nl.
