The Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum in North Tonawanda is pleased to offer a special field trip program this holiday season! Several fun and festive activities have been developed to ensure an exciting experience for all, including:

· Learn about holiday traditions from the 19th and 20th centuries with themed trees and hands-on objects

· Read a holiday story

· Make a Victorian-style carrousel ornament

· Ride on our 1916 carrousel, decorated for the season!

· Visit the Museum Store for unique holiday gifts

This exciting new tour opportunity will be available Wednesdays – Fridays, November 30 – December 23, 2011. Tours last 1 – 1 ½ hours, and can be scheduled to begin anytime between 10:00am and 3:00pm. Though the tour is targeted for pre-K and Kindergarten students, it can readily be adapted for older grades. The cost for this unique opportunity is just $5.00 per person; the group leader and bus driver are complimentary. Tours can be scheduled for groups as small as 10 students, with a maximum group size of 35 students. Groups are asked to bring one chaperone for every five students.

The holiday season is almost upon us, and tour times may fill up quickly. Call the museum at 716-693-1885 today to reserve your space for one of the most unique holiday field trip opportunities in the area. Make this a very MERRY-go-round CHRISTMAS!

This project is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services.
