      Most of the carrousels in America and Canada (71 in all) owe their existence to the Herschell Carrousel Factory and the Wurlitzer Organ Company, both once active in North Tonawanda. There are several carrousels on the grounds, and admission even entitles you to ride the main one. There is even a Kids Test Area adjacent to the museum where children can ride merry-go-rounds and carnival rides made for them.

      If you go:
      The museum is open seasonally from April to December, and hours vary. There is a nominal admission fee.
