Another go-round

With new attractions ready, Carrousel Museum to open for season


Tonawanda News — Employee Bud Beiter said doing something that brings joy to children drew him to the museum after retiring. 

“I retired in September, but this place has a lot of appeal to me,” he said. “I started doing maintenance and restoration; every day you work on something different. I like how it appeals not only to kids, but the adults who want to feel like kids again.” 

In addition to the season opening, several events are coming up starting with the “Egg-cellent” Easter event April 19, followed by a Victorian Tea on April 26 and others. A complete list can be found on the museum’s website,

Spring hours at the museum are noon to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday.
