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 !

The animals are amazing...the real thing that takes you back in time. If you truly appreciate Carousels as they were first created, this is an excellent place to get a close up view. Make sure you leave time to grab a brass ring

We love carousels - grew up in Seaside Park NJ. The museum here is very well done - small but free and has a nice gift shop.
