  • I love it when historic building finds a new use, and what better use of a round building than to house a Merry Go Round. My daughter and I had the place to ourselves on a Wednesday afternoon and we t...  more »

  • A delight for adults and kids alike! This museum is a treasure. From the carousel horses to the history it is magical. One ride on the carousel is included with admission, additional rides are $1 (and worth every penny). The volunteers are kind and knowledgeable, but know that it may mean a bit of a wait as sometimes 1 volunteer is reponsible for the gift shop, admissions, carousel operations and questions. Don't miss out on the 6 etching plates where kids of all ages can make a free picture or 6 to take with.
  • I had my daughters' 1st birthday party here. All staff was excellent. Janet made the birthday party special she was awesome making sure everyone was able to ride the carousel safely. It was the perfect backdrop for a rainbow unicorn themed party. And not at all expensive for 50 guests to party.
  • I am a big fan of carousels and merry go rounds. I photograph them all over when travelling. This museum was fun to see to know the history and to see some restoration in progress. Small museum but you can still spend hours here. Staff are all fun and the gift shop is quaint.
  • A very enjoyable place! I never realized the craftsmanship and artistry before. Watching the woodcarvers was nice. Riding on the merry go round was something I haven't done in over 50 years!
  • Very cool little museum. The kids and adults loved the working merry go round in the middle of the building. Lots of cool examples of the wood animals and even a cool open workshop to watch how they are made.
