“You can see a lot thru the doors if they are closed”

I'd love to catch this thing open. It's worth a look even if it's closed. You can see a lot through the locked doors, and read several signs.

“Beautifully Restored”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

What a treasure! It was worth the effort to see a one-of-a-kind carousel, walk through the little museum and actually see the smiles on my kids as they picked their favorite animals and went for a ride. The staff were super nice, very knowledgeable and as a visitor, I could tell how much they cared for the work they do. Kit Carson County has taken great pride in their carousel and it shows.

“Worth the quick stop!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

We stopped for lunch in Burlington while driving cross country and saw that the town had a carousel. I am so happy we stopped in for a ride! Beautifully restored carousel in which you can tell the county takes great pride. Before the ride we heard a 3 min talk about the history of the carousel - very interesting!

My kids enjoyed the different animals - we rode on the camels. For 25 cents and a 20 minute stop, this was a wonderful last minute activity.

“One of a kind”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

This is one of a kind carousel with hand carved animals you can ride on, nice music to go with your ride bring back the past to present. you can't beat the ticket price. .25 cents busy summer days but some days ride is free. Burlington is a small town but the people are not small town folks, they have big heart towards tourists and locals alike.

A work of art, well maintained, everyone is so welcoming. I am proud to think that not all old things end up in the dump
