  • This museum is a nice trip for the whole family members specially in a cold day in the winter. The museum is small but full of variety of carousels in shapes, colors, dates and how they been carved from simple to sophisticated. Our tour guy Nick was very informative and passionate about carousels. The Carrousel museum is in the 1st floor, where is also a carousel ride. The 2nd floor is the museum of Fire history. All include in the tour.
  • Very nice place. Very courteous and friendly staff. The kids loved the carousel ride over and over again.
  • Awesome tour. Great place to spend a couple hours on a weekend. Look for a groupon
  • The main attraction, the working carousel, was much smaller than I expected and didn't play any music while operating. If you're looking for a good carousel ride, the one in Buckland mall is much better. That being said, my 3 year old had a great time at the Carousel Museum's carnival the first weekend of December. The balloon animals and face painting were a big hit. The lines were very long but luckily my daughter didn't mind. Without the extra carnival activities we probably would have only stayed 30 mins, but we ended up staying a couple of hours.
  • Neat, but rustic and definitely an acquired taste.
