Nunley’s Carousel was created in 1912 by the Stein and Goldstein Artistic Carousell Co. of Brooklyn New York. The carousel was installed on the Brooklyn waterfront in Canarsie’s Golden City Park where it was known as “Murphy’s” carousel and operated for 26 years. in the Spring of 1940, it reopened as Nunley's Carousel in Baldwin NY. Nunley’s closed in 1995 and was purchased by Nassau County. Re-opened in its new home on Museum Row in 2009, the carousel has been painstakingly restored to its former glory.

“Oh the places you’ll go!” People of the world need to travel, from towns to states and even different countries! Traffic and congestion have become more frustrating and dangerous to our environment. Many experts believe the best way to solve this problem is to design new transportation systems that use renewable energy sources like Solar and Magnetic Levitation. Using math, science, and technology principles to optimize the design of their vehicles, students will design and build their vehicles and then come to the museum to compete for awards.

Pre-registration is required before June 4th 2019.
