Model Alexandria Palmer was photographed in the New England Carousel Museum at 95 Riverside Ave., Bristol. The museum, which features a bevy of historic carousel horses and other animals, also serves as home to the The Museum of Fire History, the Museum of Greek Art and History, and a carousel animal Restoration Department (which is in the midst of restoring the rides for the Bushnell Park carousel, which is overseen by the museum). The facility also includes two art galleries, one of which features the work of renowned local artist Glo Sessions.
The museum also is available for rental for a variety of events. For instance, the museum is regularly booked for weddings. The Ballroom, which is in the top floor of the historic factory building, can accommodate 230 sitting guests, has a dance floor and crystal chandeliers.
