CW Parker Carousel Museumâ€Ž
It's mildly interesting, and certainly a unique slice of local history. After one short visit and tour the only reason to return is the working carousel, which my young children found a bit scary due to its speed.
We visited here during their small mall event, which the kids really enjoyed. It gave them an opportunity to "buy" Xmas gifts (adults pre-pay for the gifts) for family and friends along with the help of an elf. They also had a chance to ride a beautifully kept old carousel, and they loved that. Santa of course was also there, and he did a nice job. My only criticism would be that Santa sat in the hallway and didn't have a picturesque background, so the pictures with Santa didn't look very nice.
Such a wonderful place to take the children to especially round Christmas time they let the children go shopping for there family and friends the carousel horse bring back memories of when I was a child riding the horse at our community
Great spot to visit on a weekend afternoon! You can always hear the melody of the carousel playing as you walk or drive by. There are two carousels available to ride and one extremely old one on loan to the museum. Taking the tour is definitely worth the 20 minutes, so much history in that building and the carousel horses are amazing. Visit the restoration shop, see old and new carousel animals and learn about the history of C.W. Parker!

Not very big but a whole lot of fun for the family. Informative too.
