About this activity

It's all about that classic amusement ride at the New England Carousel Museum! The New England Carousel Museum is dedicated to the restoration and protection of those classic carousels, kids can learn all about the history of the carousel as they check out the amazing detail in them!

They can see antique wooden carousel pieces, as well as learn all about the restoration process!

Of course a day to this fun museum includes a ride on the indoor carousel, and that one ride is included in your admission too!

The museum is connected to Bushnell Park Carousel which is found in Bushnell Park in Hartford, and is worth a visit as it dates back to 1914 and you can really enjoy that fun carousel in the park experience!

They occasionally have fun exhibits too, so keep an eye on what's coming up so you don't miss out!

The museum also has the Museum of Fire History, but that is reserved for school tours and adult tours.
