It is a self guided tour but all the carriages have clearly written descriptions. Special display of refurbished royal coach from Austria. Bistro on premise that is very good.

Great carriage museum. Worth the time to visit. Off the beaten track but easy to find. A bonus to RV campers as they do have a nice camping area.

Is there a pond on the grounds? Perhaps you have a Koi Pond? If so, we have 2 Koi that are looking for a new home. They have grown too big for our pond at 20-22" now. Contact us at : 352 633-0616 if interested.
