Overview

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.

This is a hidden treasure. The carousel was assembled by a team of dedicated volunteers and craftsmen and every horse was hand-carved and painted. Each one has a name and history. If you ride on the outside, you can try to grab a brass ring...More

Reading about the community effort to design, build and maintain the Carousel gave a great sense of the community spirit in Missoula. Bravo! Very much worth seeing.

The carousel was wonderful entertainment for our grandchildren. It went a little fast for the younger ones but was good for older children.
