Fodor's Expert Review New England Carousel Museum

Bristol Museum/Gallery

One of the largest collections of antique carousel pieces in the country is housed here. Full-size pieces in the Coney Island, Country Fair, and Philadelphia styles are on display, as are miniature carousels. The museum is also home to an arts gallery, which hosts changing exhibitions, and the Museum of Fire History, which displays photos, antique equipment, and memorabilia. The Carousel Museum also oversees the Bushnell Park Carousel in Hartford (in operation May–October).
