COVID-19 Update - Carousel temporarily closed. Click for more details.


The happiest place in Southwest Michigan is feeling sad, but ...

… we are SO LOOKING FORWARD to seeing your smiling faces soon!

All 50 of our magnificent Carousel figures and our wonderful crew of volunteers and staff are feeling sad. We miss seeing you and hearing your laughter. But we know how very, very important it is to stay home, stay safe and stay well. So we are counting the days until it is safe for you to spend happy times with us again.

We will REMAIN CLOSED through May 31, with plans to re-open June 1. We will follow Michigan’s Stay Safe|Stay Home orders if they are extended, so please check here or our Facebook page for our re-opening updates and announcements!

When we re-open we will continue taking our rigorous Keep It Clean | Keep It Safe steps.

Our #1 priority is always your safety and health. When we re-open we will remain vigilant to keep the Carousel House safe, clean and healthy for you and our other guests. To mitigate any health risks to you and our community we will be:

  • Increasing how often we wipe down all high-touch surfaces with anti-viral/bacterial wipes: door handles, railings, figures, interactive museum exhibits, table surfaces, counters, etc. Our Carousel brass poles are naturally antimicrobial to protect all of our riders, all of the time. However, we will wipe those as well.
  • Closely monitoring and following the recommendations and directives of the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and the Berrien County Health Department to ensure we follow best practices and that our building sanitation procedures are up-to-date and effective.

How you can help keep everyone safe and healthy when you’re here having fun. 

  • Clean your hands thoroughly before and after visiting the Carousel House. Wash with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds. (Sing the “ABC SONG” twice and you’ll have washed long enough!)
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and then throw it in the trash. Wash your hands or use a sanitizer wipe afterward.
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home if you or your children are sick or have flu-like symptoms. 
  • Tell your doctor about your symptoms and travel history.
  • As a service to our community, Spectrum Health is offering FREE COVID-19 virtual screenings 24/7 to people in the state of Michigan who are experiencing these symptoms: fever, cough and/or difficulty breathing. Please call the Spectrum Health COVID-19 hotline at 833-559-0659 to schedule a virtual screening. If you have severe or life-threatening symptoms, please call 911.

We will re-open when it’s safe to do so … we can’t wait to be together with you again!
