“Nice carousel next to Science center”
3 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.

“Great Northern Carousel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Great Northern area is a nearer spot in Helena. A great little area to walk around. Carousel is a fun spot for children and they have delious ice cream cones too. Several restaurants & hotels in this area.....although most are on the more expensive side but there is a Subway sandwich stop in the area. Also the Cinema is located just a couple blocks from the Carousel. On Thursdays during the lunch hour, they have musicians playing music outside the Carousel. Plenty of spots to stand or sit and listen to the music.
