This beautiful carousel, completed in 1995, was the brainchild and vision of a local Missoula cabinet-maker, who carved much of the structure himself and also trained an enthusiastic team of volunteers to assist in the project.

Not much else to do on a rainy/snowy day in downtown Missoula, so we gave it a try and even our 12 and 15 year olds enjoyed this! High speed and grab-the-rings made it a fun diversion. And only 75 cents per ride!

Well worth the 30 minutes necessary to visit the Carousel! Perfect for the kids or the kid at heart. Don't stop in Missoula and miss this community landmark.

A fun place to spend the afternoon with kids. The ride is FAST so be prepared for that. Dragons Hollow playground and the children's museum are all walking distance.

We loved the carousel. The whole area was clean and the staff friendly. The ride itself went really fast and I wasn't expecting that. It didn't seem to bother my son as he fell asleep!

It's affordable and fun for everyone. It moves surprisingly fast and lasts much longer than one would expect.

We took our 5 year old grandson here last summer and he absolutely loved it. We packed a picnic lunch and ate down by the river and then he must have rode the carousel 20 times! Very fun and unique experience for the little guy.

This is a must visit if you are in Missoula with children. This wonderfully restored carousel will definitely bring smiles to both young and old. There is an adjoining playground which is fantastic as well. Enjoy!

This is a wonderful experience. Very romantic or family oriented. Mind you it goes pretty fast. I have had the opportunity to bar tend for a wedding where they rented the space. It was very nice. Recommend a visit.
