  • 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.
  • Very nice...my 2 year old enjoyed riding the carousel 4 times!
  • Interesting tour led by a very nice lady, with a carosel ride at the end. Will be back for another ride.
  • It's mildly interesting, and certainly a unique slice of local history. After one short visit and tour the only reason to return is the working carousel, which my young children found a bit scary due to its speed.
  • This is a one-of-a-kind museum... It is worth a trip to Leavenworth just to visit this museum.
