Hampton History Museum

  1. Hampton Carousel

    June 1, 2021, 11:00 AM - December 31, 2021, 8:00 PM @ Carousel Park & Hampton Carousel

    After being closed for over a year due to the pandemic, the Hampton Carousel opens for the 2021 season on June 1 with COVID protocols. Located in Carousel Park and operated by the Hampton History Museum, the former Buckroe Beach carousel is one of the City of Hampton’s most treasured historic assets. Built in 1920, the carousel is completely restored to its original beauty and housed in its own weather-protected pavilion at Carousel Park on the city’s downtown waterfront. It is one of only 170 antique wooden merry-go-rounds still existing in the U.S. Hand crafted by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company for the Buckroe Beach Amusement Park, Hampton's Carousel is a whirling tribute to the skill of its creators. The Hampton Carousel will operate under federal, state and City of Hampton COVID-19 protocols. Guests will be required to wear masks when inside the carousel building, practice social distancing, and use hand-sanitizer before and after rides.

    Join us on Zoom as we host a presentation by the Mariners' Museum and Park on Admiral Dewey and his role in the Spanish-American War. The "splendid little war" that lasted only 4 months helped cement the United States as a Naval power and gave rise to the war hero of Admiral Dewey. Explore the history of this short conflict and the legend though objects in the Mariners' Museum Collection. Presented by Jennifer Hackney, Material Culture Educator at The Mariners' Museum and Park.
