We both enjoyed climbing aboard the "fully restored" Allan Herschell Carousel with the band organ playing. The carousel at the heart of the museum was purchased in 1991. It was built in North Tonawanda, New York. The carousel came without any of the original animals. The frame was cleaned and refurbished, scenery panels were repainted, and the museum staff and volunteers constructed a new platform. The museum has populated the carousel with figures from the museum's collections as well as on loan from private collectors. Historic "County Fair" or "Country Fair" style animals from a variety of carvers are used, plus several recent carvings.
