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.

Had a half day to play around in Missoula. Went for a long walk, checking out the architecture of this lovely old city, then stopped in for a ride on the carousel.

This apparently is the fastest carousel in the world and I believe it. It is just a lot of fun to ride and see some of the custom built horses. And you can grab the rings and hope for the golden one which gives you a free ride.

Very ornate and well-designed horses. The carousel is value as well. It is next door to a really fun playground built by donations. It is a great family destination. Definitely a ist see

Love the carousel. It is one of my favorite places in Missoula. All the carousel animals have a name and a story that the help can share with you. Great for photography, great for riding, just an all around wonderful place to spend some time. And don't forget to grab the brass ring.

Every summer, our visiting family members (children and adults) insist on riding the Carousel. Well cared for, clean and safe. Fun for growing kids to go for the brass ring, to see how much closer they can reach each year.

Loved feeling the outdoors with this attraction while letting my inner child out. This along with my walk along the park and the river close by was a true treat to my day of play.

Me and my sister went here on one of our stays. We took her Boys ,they were both late teens and had a blast. There was also a Farmers Market there too.

My friend and I only purchased two tickets (for a 1 yr old and 2.5 yr old), because we thought we could stand beside the kids and ride. We were surprised when we were told that there was no standing allowed, and we needed to sit on a horse by ourselves, or share a horse with the kids. Once the... More

We always enjoy taking kids to the Carousel. Restoring it was a big community project a number of years ago and it is still something we are very proud of. The antique horses are hand painted and you can try for the brass ring for a prize.

We have children with an age range 14-6 so we weren't sure how the carousel would go over (especially with the teenageer!). We were pleasantly surprised. We all enjoyed the carousel (obviously not a thrill ride) and rode it 4 times in a row. Our older children liked the challenge of 'grabbing the rings' as the carousel went around and... More
