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.

The kids love it.

The kids just love going here. A large play ground right next to it with a huge castle for them to run around in and climb.

A Carousel for Missoula is a great experience. Hand carved and painted horses. Great place for the kids or grand kids. They can actually try to get the ring as they go around, just like in the old days.

I wondered why there were seat belts, this is the fastest spinning carousel I've ever seen. Myself and most of my kids seem fine with it. I did she one adult throw-up on herself while on the carousel. Handy washrooms inside and next door is large playground complex.

This carousel was just good, old-fashioned fun! It was a last-minute decision to visit and take a ride but we ended up going on it 3 or 4 times. Fun for kids and adults both!

I have ridden the horses (and once in a cart, but won't repeat that!) of this carousel so many times. Every time someone comes to town we go to the carousel. We have attended countless birthday parties there. Christmas parties. Corporate events. It is such a fun place! Adults love it too because there are big horses with saddles big... More

We had to pay to park but it was worth it to ride. An antique carousel covered with a building. When we were there they were remodeling the snack bar. The ride was nice and long. We will be back!

We could not get in, as there was a private party, but we viewed the carousel from the windows. Hand crafted, very cute!

Located near the river in downtown Missoula, the Carousel has been a hit with families. It's a little like going back in time and the music associated with the ride is amazing. My two 6 year old boys absolutely love it and there's a children's park next to it. The venue is clean and the staff very friendly and helpful.
