This museum is great. It has so many different animals that were on a Carrosell at one time or another. There are also places that kids can do pictures of different things in the museum with crayons. E loved this museum

Visited the museum and found the displays very interesting. Admission includes a ride on their classic carousel that was quite fast and was a terrific experience.

The museum is wheelchair accessible. I do not believe they provide wheelchairs, but recommend that you call ahead and ask.
