As I child I grew up riding the carousel at Knoebels. Today, with grandchildren of my own, I love to walk around the museum and see the exquisite treasures of the museum.

The carousel museum is amazing. The history and the artistry of creating all of the different animals and intricate hand carved wood work of the figurines is fascinating. I found this a very historically and culturally enlightening experience.

This is a free attraction in a park with free admission and even free car parking. There is a brilliant range of items and being Knoebels the staff are great. There is also a shop for various items

been here several times and it's always interesting. Also a great place to cool off in the air-conditioning on a very hot day!

Like a lot of people found this place looking for souvenirs. Nice history of carousels. Not really something you go to the park for or see every visit. Good stop to cool off in the summer or stay dry when its raining !
