Fodor's Expert Review Albany Historic Carousel and Museum
It's not often that you get to watch a carousel being built, but that's exactly what's happening here. Craftsmen and volunteers from the Albany area have come together to contribute thousands of hours to carving and painting a huge array of whimsical carousel creatures ranging from traditional horses to giant frogs and dragons. They hope to have the carousel in operation in 2017, but there have been plenty of delays in the project so it's best to call ahead. In the meantime you can enjoy watching the creations come together, as well as viewing many historical carousel artifacts in the museum.
