A quick good activity for those visiting the nearby museums, and a well-priced add-on event to take up another 15-20 minutes. This carousel is well maintained and my kid enjoyed it, but hidden between the Children's museum and Firefigher's/Cradle of Aviation Museums. We had walked...More

This is a wonderful place to take the kids. Not too many of these old carousels still operating. They did a fantastic job with my daughter's birthday party.
