Carnival Heritage Center & Museum

category : Museums
Carnival Heritage Center & Museum Out of the heartland of America, a farmer decided those wooden horses made more money than farming. In 1908, Charles Brodbeck was fascinated that people would ride a horse to town and pay a nickel to ride a wooden horse. He bought a carousel and the family built one of the largest family carnivals in the nation. This museum is preserving that unique history of carnival in Kinsley.

The Center preserves the traditions of the family carnival, salutes famous carnival individuals and provides a nostalgic look at a form of entertainment from a simpler time.

See the Carousel Carving by Bruce White, a master carver recognized nationally for his carousel horses. Bruce will show you how these colorful works of art were made at the turn of the century. Ride his carousel in the Carnival Museum and visit White's Carousel factory in downtown Kinsley.
