To our wonderful visitors and guests,


The health of our customers, employees, volunteers, and community is paramount to the New England Carousel Museum and Museum of Fire History. We want to assure you that we are closely monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and local health department statements regarding COVID-19 (corona virus) cases and we are following all recommendations and guidelines.


Based upon current guidance and our own standards and practices we will be closing the Museum to public visitors through March 31.


Here is what we will be doing during this time.


  • Increasing sanitation, especially in high touch areas around the Museum, carousel, and children’s areas.

  • Manning the phones and emails both onsite and remotely to ensure that communication and event planning inquiries and modifications are addressed in a timely manner.

  • Working with vendors to reschedule Museum sponsored events.

  • Increasing our online store items so that guests can order items remotely and not in person.

  • Increasing our online presence through social media, so that you can still enjoy the Museum while at home!


If you have any questions please contact us at or 860-585-5411 x 105
