Explore the various rooms within the 7-structure complex. Ride a hand-carved and restored 1916 carousel. The Wurlitzer Music Roll Shop and four operating band organs play the music that makes the carousel ride magical. A Children’s Gallery provides hands-on learning and art activities for the entire family. An outdoor Kiddieland allows children to test-ride four Allan Herschell rides from the 1940s to the 1960s (Summers only). Admission fee and one ride token included. Tours are self-guided by brochure or cell phone.  Guided tours for 10 or more persons may be scheduled any time with advance notice.


Visit: Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum, 180 Thompson St, North Tonawanda, NY 14120-5420

The Herschell companies in North Tonawanda (located just 20 minutes from Niagara Falls, New York) produced over 3,000 hand-carved, wooden carousels. Many of their carousels were portable with simply carved horses, meant to be used by traveling carnivals. They were shipped all over the country. Today 71 of the 148 antique, hand-carved wooden carousels still in existence in the United States and Canada were made by Herschell. In the 1930s, the company started making small metal amusement rides for children and promoting a 'kiddieland' package to small businesses.

During a visit, view exhibits, watch a wood carving demonstration, listen to the magical sounds of a band organ, view the music roll-making shop, ride a 1916, hand-carved carousel, ride four kiddie rides (in the summer), and shop in an extensive gift shop.
