THE NEW ENGLAND CAROUSEL MUSEUM
95 Riverside Ave, Bristol, CT 06010
The New England Carousel Museum is proud to offer CT Open House Day on Saturday, June 13th. The Connecticut Office of Tourism is sponsoring the 11th annual Connecticut Open House Day which is a one-day statewide event, designed to showcase Connecticut’s diverse world of history, art, and tourism.
A great way for residents to discover or rediscover all that is happening in our state. We hope that once Connecticut residents learn about the wealth of treasures in our own backyard, they will share their newly gained appreciation and enthusiasm with visiting family and friends and become Connecticut ambassadors who take pride in sharing the treasures of their community.
The New England Carousel Museum is offering free admission to children and free carousel rides all day long from 10am to 5pm, accompanied by an adult. Adult admission is $6 per person.
The Chaparrals, are performing live at the Carousel Museum, in the evening from 7 to 11PM. Admission is $12 per person. BYOB
