The Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum is a proud participant in the eighth annual Museum Day, presented by Smithsonian magazine. A celebration of culture, learning, and the dissemination of knowledge, Museum Day helps make museums more accessible to visitors across the country. Last year’s event drew over 350,000 museum-goers, and this year’s Museum Day is expected to attract close to 400,000 participants to the over 1,400 participating venues. If you’ve always wanted to check out the Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum, or come back for a repeat visit, this is the perfect time. Enjoy the museum’s exhibits on woodcarving and band organs, displays of antique carrousel horses, and hands-on children’s gallery all at no charge. This year’s Museum Day is being held Saturday, September 29; the Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum will be open between 12:00pm and 4:00pm. But remember—visit a museum every day, not just on Museum Day!
