We are making a new carousel for downtown Albany, OR. Our animals and decorations are completely new designs, hand carved, and hand painted. The carousel will run on a restored 1909 mechanism.

The Dentzel family has lent us many items from their personal collection to display in our museum.

We welcome visitors to our studios and museum.

  • While there, you must experience the volunteer wood carvers in the lower basement level. Ten working on different projects when we visited!

  • My family had a wonderful time at the Carousel 🎠 The staff was friendly and courteous. The carousel was beautiful inside and out. We got 10 free ride bracelets with our party room rental. The kids loved riding all the different beautiful carousel animals and creatures. They have a little cafe with decent food and prices. They have a cute little gift shop with lots of fun stuff. They also have a guided tour downstairs of how they make the carousel animals. It was pretty cool to see how they are made. We had a wonderful experience. We will definitely be going back.
  • A great little museum. Really fun for littler kids and just a few bucks for each ride. Pro tip: non-riding adults holding younger kiddos spin for free!
