About

The Carousel of Happiness is…

  • A 501(c)3 nonprofit organization
  • A unique, participatory exhibit of folk art
  • A living piece of American history
  • A community space for meetings, parties, weddings
  • A destination for people with disabilities
  • A demonstration building for green, energy-saving technologies
  • An outpost of simple joy for young and old!

The Carousel has 36 colorful, hand-carved animals to ride, and 25 smaller animals keeping them company. Tiny fairies fly overhead and hide in the shadows.

Upstairs there is an observation window, a small party room, and a Do-It-Yourself Puppet Theatre housed in a lovingly restored anitque band organ facade.

The Carousel Gift Shop sells high-quality toys, books, posters, gifts, puppets, and the work of local artists and artisans.
