New York State Museum – Enchanting Carousel

Life got you going a little crazy? Whether you’ve got the three year-old fidgets, or some sixty year-old mischief, once you spot the enchanting the carousel at the New York State Museum in Albany, your life will take on a whole new vibe.Colorful, gilded, elegant, the 36 restored horses challenge you to choose a favorite and once you do, you’re in for a treat as you make the historic rounds of history. This beauty was built between 1912 and 1916 by the Herschell-Spillman Company of North Tonawanda, New York, one of the leading manufacturers of carousels in America. Today, it serves as a favorite destination in an already wonder-filled museum.A pause between rounds brings opportunities to tour permanent exhibits such as the Cohoes Mastodon, Ancient Life of New York, and much more, as well as special exhibits such as “Seeing Ourselves: Masterpieces of American Photography from George Eastman House International Museum of Photography & Film Collection.
