Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

When was the last time you sat on a horse on a merry-go-round and reached for the brass ring? I remember as a boy, I found this to be magical! Well, when you visit Missoula, Montana, there is a carousel that must be seen and enjoyed. Imagine if you will, horses and animals all hand carved and hand painted with colors and saddles and other various decor that instantly thrusts you back into your childhood. The carousel is in Caras Park which can be accessed by foot from downtown Missoula in just a few minutes. When you see the carousel and hear the organ music, it will take you to a time that many thought had disappeared, only to find it resurfaced here in Missoula.
I do not know of one child or adult that would not find this experience a delightful one and one they would talk about for many years to come. By the way, if you get the brass ring, you really do get a prize!!!!

This carousel is so fast! I love their pricing structure. 75 cents for kids and just an extra 75 cent for an adult that will share a horse with a child. The young adults working the carousel and concessions were friendly and helpful.

loved the carousel in Missoula. It is housed at a really cute park downtown, and the price to ride is amazing under 2.00 a person :)

A really beautiful and fun attraction for kids, and in a great location to go view the kayakers in Brennans Wave on the Clark Fork river which is in the park beside the carousel.

The carousel staff are all very good with the kids. The Carousel is open year-round. It features real organ music and locally hand-carved and hand-painted ponies. Each pony has its own name and story. The Carousel is situated in the heart of downtown Missoula, right by the river, a beautiful walking path and serene scenery.
