Well worth the time! We got to watch a craftsman work on his wood creation. Talked with Dick, a most delightful senior volunteer. Then our group of senior citizens rode the carrousel, (though climbing on the wooden animals was a challenge)!

This is a great opportunity to see all the amazing craftsmanship that went into the creation of the animals and how they came about. Talking to the volunteers and watching them work on restoring the old ones. Great family place and adults

Visited the museum and found the displays very interesting. Admission includes a ride on their classic carousel that was quite fast and was a terrific experience.
