A new exhibit called "Circus Zircus" at the Chicago Children's Museum will bring young people behind the scenes at the circus.

Children are encouraged to be the stars of the show. They can jump through hoops or feel what it's like on the flying trapeze.

In a backstage area, kids can practice their circus skills and dress up in costumes. In the performance area, visitors can sell tickets and put on a show in the center ring.
