Stained glass window now will greet museum guests

A new addition to the New England Carousel Museum front door will greet you as you enter the building thanks to the talent of Sarah Segovia, local stained glass window artist.

Sarah has designed and produced a new window for the front door entrance of the museum, depicting a carousel horse.

In a press release, the museum explained, “When our window was accidently broken, we decided to do something special for the replacement window so we called in Sarah, a long-time friend of the museum and respected artist, to talk about a new design. Plymouth Glass took Sarah’s design and encased it in a protective glass ‘sandwich’ and installed the art work in the front door of the museum just in time for Connecticut Open House Day coming up this weekend, on Saturday, June 11.”

“This new entrance art is definitely a ‘Wow,’” experience said Louise DeMars, executive director of the museum. “What a wonderful way to greet our visitors.”

In addition, the museum is available for wonderful birthday parties with four theme parties, a deluxe birthday package and a basic no frills party.  All party participants get to enjoy rides on the carousel that is now operating in the museum building. The museum second floor has a splendid banquet hall with a huge dance floor that is a unique location for weddings, dinners, dances, reunions, performances, wine-tastings, showers, meetings, and puppet shows.

The museum is open Wednesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, from noon to 5 p.m.

The museum is located at 95 Riverside Ave., Route 72 in Bristol.
