Colorful horses and menagerie animals are preserved in this museum dedicated to the Golden Age of Carousel. – The Scene


The restored first floor of an old factory building holds one of the country's largest collections of antique carousel pieces. Just 15 minutes west of Hartford, a world of American folk art exists with enthusiastic guides at its helm.



The Best


Horses adorned with ribbons, roses and wings stand just beyond roped-off sections. Elephants, giraffes, pigs and ducks add color and character to the collection. There's no better way to experience the Golden Age of Carousel than to take a guided tour. Guides explain the history of each piece, the artist behind them, as well as the development and history of the art.



The Rest


The museum is especially child-friendly, with an entire room dedicated to little ones. Tykes can ride a miniature carousel or play a game of pin the tail on the carousel horse.
