This quaint place has more inside than we expected. There are many displays of carousel horses in all stages of repair; some are very old and in original condition, some are fully restored and spectacular, and everything in-between. There are displays explaining everything you ever wanted to know about the making of the carousel horses and other creatures. There is even a working carousel and you get a ticket for a ride on it with your admission fee. We stayed here almost 3 hours looking at everything and talking to the friendly and knowledgeable staff. It was a great thing to do on a rainy afternoon in beautiful CT. There is a room showing the restoration work being done by their master carver, and also a small fireman's museum upstairs. Great place for children's birthday and other parties, too.
