CW Parker Carousel Museumâ€Ž
This is a gem that doesn't get the attention it deserves. My daughter (toddler) loved riding on the old carousel and my wife and I found the museum very interesting. We will definitely return!
The restoration work and information in the museum is fascinating, and the working carousel that you can ride is beautiful, has a gorgeous band organ, and is one of the fastest carousels in existence! It was a lot of fun to ride. Definitely worth the admission price. I would go again.
My family and I adore the C. W. Parker Carousel Museum and go back often. The people who volunteer there are wonderful and always kind. The price for tickets is great! They have recently introduced these value cards that you buy that make the rides even cheaper. That would be a great gift for a child or just to buy if you take you children there often. Our son had his 3rd birthday there and it was unforgettable! Worth every cent! We would love to do it again! If you've never taken the tour, I suggest you do. The history is so interesting and you get to see other carousels and horses, their work station where they fix up old carousel horses, and so much more up stairs! They often have wonderful events, sometimes free. There are family nights, I think on Fridays. You get a meal and rides for around six dollars. They let the kids bust our a pinatã at the end.
So whimsical! It was very interesting to learn about the history of carousels and the carousel ride was so fun!
Fun place to see the history of carousels in Leavenworth. Has a fun full size carousel to ride on!
