While there are some beautiful merry-go-round horses on the Carousel, many of the animals are native to Montana. Ride a grizzly, a bobcat, a frog, a mountain goat, an antilope, a rabbit and many other animals. Grab for the gold ring as you ride and between rides enjoy some wonderful ice cream. Great place for a family and everyone. Actual... More

Carousel has so many animals and critters to ride. We rode a few times just to get on all the ones we wanted. The ring toss was a nice surprise.

Ice Cream and a memorable fun time with my kids. This is the kind of place that sets a tone that memories are made of. Ride the carousel and try to get the golden ring to win a free ride the next time you come. And when you are done, get some delicious ice cream from the uber friendly staff.

Our sons family visited from Florida this January and finding somthing for a 3 year old and a 4 month old during snowy, windy January weather was a challenge! Thank Goodness for the Carousel! We spent the afternoon having rides and ice cream....Beautiful carousel!!!

The Carosel is both beautiful and fun. The hand-painted animals are Montana animals, and where else can you ride a trout? The carosel goes quite fast and there is a brass ring you can grab for.

I took my Granddaughter here and she loved it! The Carousel is wonderful, all redone and stained glass of Montana area's. There is ice cream for all, and a small gift shop. Your Children and Grandchildren will love it, and everyone really.

A fun place for kids. Clean and well maintained. If you take the trolly/train tour you get one free ride per ticket. But really this is just a carousel so you shouldn't expect to spend much time here.

What an easy way to "see" the beauty below. Go anytime, and be sure to take a camera. It may seem formidable at first, but it's definitely worth the hike (and you don't even need hiking boots!)

This unusual carousel is a tribute to whole family fun! The vision of having a Montana animal menagerie is faithfully done and is located near the science museum! Take some time to examine the intricately carved and ride-able wildlife.

The Great Northern Carousel is a great place for children of all ages and family members alike. After taking a ride (or several) on the carousel horses (or various animals), you can get treats such as different flavored ice cream. What a great treat. You can also get sandwich's there. They also have a great gift shop that offers entertaining... More
