So sad to learn that Willowbrook will be closing after this season. They offer a large collection of farm equipment, beautiful antique carriages and sleighs including a restored Concord coach. The antique carousel is amazing and a ride on it is a chance of a lifetime. This is the world's largest portable carousel. It's history is fascinating. If you've always... More

This was a favorite with my family and Christmas Shopping was incomplete unless we had some type of period roy or publication from their gift shop. To all the faithful folks that staffed her over the years. Thank You for the education and me,prices.

Lots of things to see from an antique carrousel (that you can ride on) to sleighs, carriages, farm machinery. Don't miss High Tea at the main house. Plan to spend at least 3 hours. Friendly and informative staff and volunteers made this a great way to spend the afternoon. Would highly recommend it to anyone.

Had an awesome day! Horse drawn carriage ride, rode the 1894 carousel, they even had a live pianist accompanying silent movies at the ice cream parlor. Recommend visiting the side near the Trafton house first so you get a chance to see the live events before 3 (they were finishing up around 3:30). Something for everyone, we arrived at 12:30...

We came here primarily to see the vintage and historic 112 year old operating Armitage Spillman carousel. The carousel was amazing. We were very disappointed in the attitude and demeanor of the woman who introduced us to the carousel and gave us a ride. After the ride we wanted to linger a few minutes to take some photographs, but we... More

We had a great day out here and there is something for the whole family. Very authentic period houses, shops and workshops. Lots of machinery, transport items including the beautiful coach. The carousel is a lot of fun for everybody and we had a great time talking to the curator. It seems they had to rationalise the collection a few... More

We spent an entire day here. You can simply wander around and see this on your own. If you do go, make sure to ride the carousel, and listen to the stories about it! This neat little out of the way attraction has a lot of history, and is well worth stopping in to see, if thats your thing. Plan... More

Lots of interesting stuff to see and touch. I did not like the "registration" process; it should be optional and the lady made the entire process uncomfortable for me. The fee is $15, which is a little high in my opinion. I enjoyed the museum but unfortunately, the carrousel was not available for the rides. I suggest you call before... More

Great collection of old time Maine artifacts. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. It takes a while to see all of the things the have to offer but it is well worth the time. I think the highlight of the visit was riding and watching my 86 year old aunt ride the carrousel! Unlike another review suggests, we had... More

We took my 15 year old grand daughter as part of her birthday celebration. The highlight was a ride on the fully restored protable carrosell. It was well worth the wiat. It only runs three times a day. It is not hard to find, but it is not very near anything else. The rolling hills and back roads and their... More
