So much cool history, a really sweet museum with tons of character. Riding on the historic merry-go-round inside was wonderful.

This is a gem a must see. I was shocked how fast the carousel goes. The animals on the carousel ride are amazing. If you’re in Sandusky you must stop into this place. If you have kids, they will love you.

Nice little museum. Wanted something to do for a little bit on rainy afternoon while staying in the area and found this place on TA. $6 for adult admission included ride on Merry Go Round. It is small but looking at all the amazing carvings of the different animals was worth it. They are many hand carved animals from the turn of the century. From all over the US, many survived different disasters like hurricans. Worth the stop if you want something off the beaten path to do for around an hour. Friendly staff willing to answer questions and provide information. Little gift shop too.

Our daughter loves merry-go-rounds. She won’t pass up a chance for her to ride a carousel. Went on a school day just before all the museums closed temporarily due to COVID 19 outbreak. We had the place to ourselves. The building is an old post office so that added to the historical feeling. The place was full of beautiful art work of different animals that once was a part of the carousel, but restored as much as they could. The carousel itself was beautiful and well maintained. The ride was definitely longer than most merry go rounds that we have been on. We were in and out in about a hour. Worth the admission price in my opinion. Highly recommend this place if you or anyone in your family loves merry go arounds.

Just a little trip to Sandusky and went to ride a carousel. The carousel goes faster then we expected which made it a lot of fun. The horses are very ornate and in excellent shape. A woodcarver was working on a horse and you got to see a true artist.
