The Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum is located in the company`s original 19th century factory building. Both the building and the 1916 #1 Special Carrousel housed there are on the National Register of Historic Places. Visitors can discover the art, science, math, music and social history of the early American amusement industry through the museum`s rich artifact collection, including hand-carved wooden carrousel animals and the only remaining music roll production equipment from the Wurlitzer Company.
