  • I went to check out the museum soon after I had moved to the area and was very impressed. The items on display show wonderful craftsmanship. I think it is a wonderful place to bring young children, and adults alike who like carousels and the history related to carousels. You even get a token for a free ride in one of the carousels.

  • Fib place to spend an hour or two. Nice collection of beautiful carousel houses and other animals. Also a craft area where the kids have a lot of fun. Fire history museum upstairs is also nice.
