Moving through the wide corridors of the museum, you can almost hear the clip-clopping of hooves, the rumble of wooden wheels, and the sharp snap of reigns on the back of a team of ready horses. Each display tells a story, vivid vignettes of times gone by – a pioneer family on the trail to a new life, a wealthy businessman traveling the cobblestone streets of New York in comfort and anonymity, a horse-drawn sled that pulled farm children to school over snow covered fields.
The Remington Carriage Museum is the largest museum of horse drawn transportation in the world. Its series of interactive galleries showcases over 250 authentic carriages, many restored meticulously to their original condition. Guests can see how carriages are constructed in the on-site factory, watch a blacksmith hard at work, visit four-legged friends in the stable, and of course take a carriage ride around the grounds.
Take a tour through the Remington Carriage Museum and let yourself be drawn back in time.
