Historic Nunley's Carousel

Nunley's Carousel is located in its own building adjacent to the Cradle of Aviation Museum on Museum Row. 

Admission is $2.00 per rider and everyone on the carousel is required to have a ticket!

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.

Murphy's Carousel became Nunley's Carousel

About the Long Island Retro Gaming Expo - August 2020
Long Island’s premier gaming convention began with a simple idea, “Let’s make the kind of show we’d all want to go to!” And that’s exactly what they’ve done by providing a friendly and welcoming environment to everyone, including guests, volunteers and vendors. Heading into their 6th year in 2020, their “fun-first” approach has guided them from a small single-day show to a multi-day celebration of gaming with over 4000 attendees in 2019. Find more info at
