Our permanent home is now under construction, but you can still watch our carvers and painters at work in our temporary studio, and enjoy browsing our gift shop. We should be in our new home in June, 2017. Founded in 2004, the Historic Carousel and Museum is creating a world class carousel complex in downtown Albany that will draw visitors from around the world and contribute to the economic revitalization of historic downtown Albany.

We had to stop in with her young son and were surprised at the amazing detail of the carvings on the carousel. Tickets were reasonable to ride and it's a great family outing.

It is beautiful. The volunteers are so nice. The $2 is worth it, considering you'll have amazing photos.
