Event Navigation

The New England Carousel Museum lecture series, held on the second Thursday of each month in 2019 will feature presentations, exhibition openings, artist talks and workshops. Join scholars and experts as they share their vast knowledge of the art and history of carousels, carvers, artists, and your favorite carousels. Museum After Hours will be held from 6:00-7:30 PM with a wine and cheese reception taking place 6:00-6:30 PM. Admission to this series is included with general admission, and as always museum members are free.

Thursday, June 13: Carousel’s Cousins; Derby racers, Track machines, and other early thrill rides.

Derby Racers were early gravity based horse rides, track machines were a close relative of the carousel and so many other early amusement rides were a SPIN off the Carousel. Discover all the early rides as we look at the beginnings of Amusement rides!

  • September 12 – Behind the Scenes: Sneak Peek at the NECM Restoration Department
