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.

Of course we take visiting children to the carousel, but we also take our adult out-of-town guests, too. The carousel is gorgeous, but more importantly it is a lovely embodiment of the Montana community spirit. Be sure to read the story boards. Great playground right next to the carousel for young children.

From the moment you drive into parking lot, you know this place is special! Then, when you see the look in children's faces, you know you entered Missoula's version of Disneyland! Inexpensive and an overall fantastic experience for the whole family!

We always go down here when in town. Hand carved horses with unique designs. I did not ride this year, as I was not with kids. But I have done it many times in the past.

Fun place to take the family, or even for a date. Ride the Carousel and try to get the golden ring for a free ride. Good Price and lots of fun. Great place to host a party too.

The Carousel for Missoula is the perfect place for a birthday party for any age. We celebrated our Great Granddaughter's birthday there with several rides. It is always a fun time and if you are lucky enough to Catch the last ring, you receive another FREE ride.

Our two boys loved it. Even the adults got in on it. This will be a constant stop for us in Missoula. If you are ever in town you have to go. The outside play area is awesome also. As the saying goes "do it."

this carousel is a gem. The horses were all carved by local folks and each one is different and a real piece of art. The carousel is quite fast..maybe a bit fast for the young ones, but people of all ages ride. My grandson just had a wonderful time riding with his grandmother.

A beautiful place. I love this organization so much, I have them in my will. Give yourself a quick break from your routine, hop on one of many beautifully carved horses and let the wind blow through your hair as it rapidly spins around to wonderful calliope music. Go enjoy. Be a kid again.
