This is such a cute little museum! I stopped in with my kids one day. They enjoyed looking around the gift shop. The carousel ride was a blast! It goes twice as fast as a typical carousel, with cute music playing the entire time. Everyone there was very sweet and informative and the bathrooms were spotless. We will definitely be back for another ride!
The sound of a carousel brings Joy to me! Feeling like the inner child whom lives deep in my heart. Can't wait to go back to take a tour, visit the gift shop and definitely ride the carousel!
