Inaugurated in August 2000, the Museum is the most recent of the Dimitri Foundation’s initiatives and the realisation of a long-held dream of Dimitri. The museum was set up by Harald Szeemann and contains exhibits of posters, photographs, musical instruments, objects, masks, sculptures, toys, clowns, and elephants of every type. All the articles on exhibit are directly connected with comic theatre, the circus, and the figure of the clown. There is also a projection of films by the greatest comedians, in particular "Grock", the king of clowns.
