This carriage museum is a wonderful complement to historic Morven Park, and the Davis Mansion. The carriages will take you back in time in the best possible way. This museum is well worth the trip!

I enjoyed walking through the museum with its variety of carriages. I was disappointed that several of the carriages had no descriptions. It might be nice to have a little guide that differentiated the different styles. There type of carriage was usually mentioned, but I didn't know what differentiated a surrey from say a phaeton that I saw there.

This is a wonderful collection of coaches, carriages, and wagons! All that's missing is the horses, ponies, or goats that made these vehicles (including sleighs!) go... If you have kids with you, prep them first by letting them know who General Tom Thumb was... then show them the luxurious carriage that he used! One of the best parts of viewing... More

This is a very cute museum included in the Morven Park ticket price. It's small, but the carriage collection and historical information about how they were used is very interesting. I recommend it for sure!

I have to say that the coaches have all been wonderfully restored and save some of the wooden features, look brand new. However this takes away from seeing the coaches as something more. They look like they have been reproduced verses looking like historic pieces. It took away some of the fun....

The collection was impressive. I was a little disappointed at the signage. They told us what each piece was, but I would have liked more information about the actual uses for the carriages and maybe even a little back story about the individual pieces in the collection.

I had never before seen a carriage museum. This did not disappoint. The docent was very knowledgeable and friendly. An unusual window into life in the horse (and goat!) drawn carriage days.

Included in the ticket for visiting the Morven Estate, this museum is unique with its expansive collection of horse-drawn carriages. It is nicely laid out with carriages sorted by function (commerce, travel, etc.) so that there is opportunity to compare and contrast the variety available to our forefathers and foremothers. The collection is very well maintained with a series of... More
