Museum Song

Album: Barnum soundtrack (1980)

Songfacts®:

  • This is a song from the first act of Barnum, the musical based on the life of American showman Phineas T. Barnum. Like the rest of the songs in the show, it was composed by Cy Coleman and written by Michael Stewart. Sung by Barnum himself solo, it is performed in the 1986 release by Michael Crawford.

    "Museum Song" is both a list song and something of a tongue twister which finishes with a short dance routine by Barnum and the Company. >>
