Enjoy a fun and relaxed atmosphere while you tour the Merry-Go-Round Museum and learn about the history and art of the carousel. The "oom pa pa" of the band organ, and the "painted ponies" on display will thrill and enchant you. Have your smiles ready as you relive your childhood excitement when you climb aboard the working "fully restored" Allan Herschell Carousel with the band organ playing. Watch carvers bring neglected carousel pieces back to their full beauty. The Merry-Go-Round Museum maintains an active program of restoring antique carousel figures and related items. Items are often brought to the museum for restoration.
