Celebrate the official beginning of summer with the Carrousel Museum! Our outdoor Kiddieland Testing Park will be open for the season, with lots of fun for kids. Featuring four refurbished kiddie rides from the factory’s postwar baby boom era, children can soar to new heights in the helicopter, cruise the open seas in the kiddie boats, and more. Enjoy the museum’s indoor exhibits, carrousels, hands-on children’s gallery, and concessions as well this special weekend.  You won’t believe all the fun you’ll have!

June 1st through June 12th, the Kiddieland Testing Park will be open from Wednesday through Sunday from Noon until 4PM.

Our summer hours begin on Wednesday, June 15th; Kiddieland will be open Wednesday-Sunday from 10AM until 4PM


Our Kiddieland Testing Park is considered an interactive exhibit of the museum; regular museum admission rates apply. Visitors will receive one ride token with admission, which can be used at any of the Kiddieland rides or the indoor carrousels. Additional tokens can be purchased for $.50 each. This weekend and throughout the year (excluding some special events) museum members receive free admission and pay only for rides.
