“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

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.

“Nice carousel next to Science center”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

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.

“Climb Every Mountain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

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!)

“Grandkids Love Riding the Carousel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

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.

“Fun for the family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

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 and educational toys. I have found the lights and music bring back many childhood memories. The Carousel itself is decorated to tell a story of various Helena History.
