Homeschool Adventures - Carousel Museum




We have been trying to see more touristy places around our state.  Ohio is full of so many places to see and things to do.  You could spend every weekend in a year and still not visit all the fun things to do here.

While studying about Rhode Island, we visited the Carousel Museum in Sandusky, Ohio.


This time period was when Brayden started really opening up more.  He decided that he should be in pictures, and even insisted on being in many more than I planned on even taking.  This was a huge deal that day!


They featured so many different animals that have been on carousels through the years, some as early at the early 1800s.

There is even an antique carousel that you can ride.  The kids thought it was hilarious that the song being played was from Ghostbusters.





Sites of the Great Lakes graced the carousel








These deer were exhibited at the White House last year during their holiday decorating.


These were from France, turn of the century.






This was such a fun, laid back museum to visit.  The kids enjoyed seeing all the various animals and loved the ride.  If you are in the Sandusky area (home of Cedar Point), see if you can add a visit to this wonderful Buckeye Treasure!!
