My grandson & I had a lovely guided tour which ended with a carousel ride. Great exhibits & lovely staff. Will go again.
wonderful for kids and interesting for adults. enthusiastic staff and good exhibits, working little carousel, calliope all add to the fun
First visit and not the last? The atmosphere and the staff were pristine! They made the event go smoothly and were very accommodating! Then there was the fire department museum with its walls along with the carousel horses, etc and an actual working carousel. Britstol definitely has a Gem downtown!
This is a must see for anyone that enjoys history and amusement parks. This is a well done (informative) and enjoyable experience in a town known for ESPN. Best recommendation is to include both !
We stumbled upon this museum while on a road trip. The museum is filled with amazing displays. The employees are very helpful. It was a magical experience seeing so many wonderfully crafted carousel horses in one place. I'm a collector of figurines, but boy, would I love a life size carousel horse to complete my collection!

There is also a mini Firefighter History Museum, and a room... More

This museum has a glimpse of the carousel culture close to home! We went for a wine tasting event and found ourselves returning to get a better look at the fine examples of carousel 'art' The hand carved pieces on display are really something to behold! A great flashback to a time gone by,,,
This is a nice museum on carousels. We all learner a lot. Who knew carousels could be so specialized, having their own branches of design and function? There are lots of specimens of carousel horses and other animals. There is a small indoor carousel that the kids were able to ride. I believe that is newly restored and in operation... More
