“Round and Round it goes....”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Love the museum and the loud music that comes from the actual Merry Go Round that you must experience. Be prepared for a fast ride. I prefer the Zebra but all the animals are awesome. And. the craftmanship and artistry of the animals on display is awesome. If you get a chance, visit when the carvers are in action. What talent!! Just steps from some excellent restaurants in downtown Sandusky and a part that is filled with colorful flowers.

“Interesting Place”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

This is a small museum in an old Post Office. You can see old carousel pieces as well as photos of restoration work that is being done. It looks like work is sometimes done in the museum, but not the day we were there. A carousel ride is included with ticket price and they offer a military discount. You will find small decorated light houses throughout Sandusky, and two of them are outside this museum. It's worth stopping by!

“Nice little piece of history”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

Stopped by here last summer. The building was small but the volunteers were helpful and informative. Three generations of our family still talk about what a cool place this was. Allow 30 - 90 minutes to see.

“Small, but entertaining look at amusement history”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

The only negative is I wish the building (Sandusky's old post office) were biggger....As it is, they make good use of every inch of space. You can ride an indoor carrousel and the changing exhibits regarding local history and Cedar Point are fun. If you have the chance, attend one of their lecture presentations!

“A fun visit”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

There is a antique carousel to ride, many horses to see and wood carvers working on makeing new horses or restoreing old ones. Nice people run it. Not a big place, an hour will do it.
