Very nice. Especially on a gloomy winter day, but any day is good for a visit.
Sometimes the attendants will tell you about all kinds of history, if you ask the right questions ;)

Not much to look at, but what you do find is pretty special. the gift shop was the best part

We stopped here on our way through Sandusky. It's a pleasant, homey little place. Nothing too big or fancy -- don't expect lots of galleries or anything -- but they have a lovely little collection of carousel memorabilia, including a number of beautiful rare horses (and other animals). And the indoor carousel is spectacular and it MOVES! We loved it. The volunteers were so enthusiastic and warm, and went out of their way to tell us everything they could. It was clear that they really enjoy this stuff, and we did, too, because they helped us to love and understand it.

In the winter when all the outdoor fun is closed, this modest little museum was a bright spot in our day. My wife and I soaked up the history and nostalgia of the exhibits, while our kids puzzled at the variety of carousel animals. The metal rubbings were a neat diversion. But of course, the kids most enjoyed picking their favorite animals to ride on the restored carousel smack dab in the middle of everything. Whatever the weather outside, this museum will cheer and warm your soul.

It's been awhile since I've been, but as a child I LOVED the Merry-Go-Round Museum. A little magic explained & a little magic kept!
