The old factory contains two operating carousels—one from 1916 and a smaller "kiddie carousel" from the 1940s—as well as a menagerie of hand-carved carousel animals, some quite elaborate.

This site is a pleasant surprise. It includes numerous exhibits on carving, music roll production, 23 hand carved carousel figures, 2 operating carousels and 2 operating Wurlitzer band organs. The museum is housed in the Allan Herschell Company factory building, listed on the NYS and National Registers of Historic Places. What a treat! Once Around is Never Enough!
