  • It was a great experience to see the beautiful arts of the carousel horses. Extremely nice people. Very inexpensive for a family. Use AAA for our discount. The ride on the Carousel was fun.
  • Amazing place! Learned a lot about the history of Merry Go Rounds. Wonderful tour, great displays and fun environment. A must if near Sandusky!
  • Wonderful time, brings back some wonderful memories. Great staff.. loved the ride on the Merry go round and took my grandpa who was 90.. handicap ramp to get in.
  • I can't say enough good things about this place. Friendly staff to answer all your questions. Amazing collection with pieces from all manner of different times and places. A full size, operational merry-go-round that runs along side a real Wurlitzer. And they build a new horse, in house, every year; which they then give away at raffle. If you're in the area, make the stop.
  • Fantastic and informative tour. Carousel operator could be a "carney" reincarnated. Not a big place but worth a vidit.

Where to stay in Sandusky

Most of the accommodations in Sandusky are clustered around Castaway Bay to the east of downtown. From here, it's a quick drive up to Cedar Point Amusement Park, and you'll find plenty of hotels, motels, and campgrounds. Some establishments offer packages that include tickets to the park. The options in the historical downtown remain more limited, but a couple of charming inns and bed and breakfasts take you away from the bustle of the places that accommodate park-goers. Regardless of where you choose to stay, make reservations as far in advance as possible if you plan to visit during summer.
