We visited with the National Carousel Association Convention specifically to ride the 1911 -12 A-H/ Looff carousel but were pleasantly surprised at just how amazing the gardens are. The Auto museum is exceptional.

Sorry I missed your question earlier. I believe dogs on a leash and controlled by their owner may be allowed. I suggest you contact the ticket office directly and ask your question. Hope this info helps!
