We just visited the Children's Museum over the weekend, and my daughter thinks the Carousel is incredible! I always find myself staring at it, just mesmerized by it's beauty and history I suppose. There is just something magical, and almost mysterious about old Carousels. I always wonder about the artists who must have spent hours painting all of the beautiful details on every inch of the ceiling, animals, and benches, and find myself picturing children riding the exact same horses over a hundred years ago. I am just fascinated by it all! I LOVE this particular Carousel in the middle of the garden at Plaza Athenee Hotel in Paris. It just looks so enchanting. Exquisite!
