A lot to see and learn about Merry go rounds. Lots of different animals that are used on them are on display and how they are made, you even get to ride a merry go Round.

This was a neat little place to visit. It doesn't take much time, but there's a lot of craftsmanship to see. When the carousel is running, you can't help but smile and watch.

What a wonderful place to relive your childhood. We look the guided tour. Our tour guide did an awesome job. It was so nice to find out the history of each piece. To get to ride the merry go round made is feel like kids again.

At first I was not enthusiastic about going but once we got there I was so impressed and learned a lot. I never imagined the time and craft that went into making the horses and other creatures for the Merry-Go-Rounds. What an amazingly beautiful craft. So glad we went! Plus at the end of the tour you get to ride... More

It was very interesting to see how they are made. Very knowledgeable staff with a nice gift shop. Worth a stop if you going... More

This was a great small museum on the history of the merry go round. We learned so much about the different types and how they are made. The staff was very friendly and gave us a tour. My kids loved riding the indoor merry go round. Very inexpensive treat for the whole family!!!!

If you love Merry Go Rounds this museum is the place to go. For a minimal charge you get to see different animals that have been on some of the more famous carrousels around the world. You also get a "wooden nickle" to use to take a ride on the restored Merry-Go-Round that is in the center of the museum.... More
