Such a fun place to take the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Very reasonably priced.

“Great Summer Family Date”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Located on the Riverfront there is lots to do. The gift shop offers cute gifts, unique snacks (my favorite popcicles are only available there), and tokens for the carousel. My kids only need to go once or twice on the carousel so it doesn't set our family back a great deal. The outside playground makes the visit just over the top.

“Great historical Carousel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

The staff here is great. The prices are very resonable and if you have a large family or staying for a few day I recommend going in the gift shop and buying a punch card

“Great carousel experience for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012 via mobile

Indoor carousel which is immaculately maintained. Great opportunity to expose grandchildren (3 y/o boy and 5 y/o girl) to old-time carousel. Book available in the gift shop that is good for history and pictures of all the horses. Also, carving shop is attached and open - able to see craftsmen carving new designs and doing repair work on the old favorites. Surrounded by nice park with mosaic globe, nice play structure, and peace memorial.

“Ton of fun for the kids!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Great chance for the kids to ride a carousel, reach for the golden ring (free ride), and see the workshop. All right next to a great place for the kids and adults to run and play in Riverfront Park. Convenient parking, though limited, makes it a great stop if you are passing through Salem on a road trip to the beach
