Carousel & Museum

Find out today what this is all about.

About Us

Visit Historic Albany, Oregon where our talented community has volunteered over 152,000 recorded hours to create something magical! Join us as we carve and paint our way into carousel history, as well as into the hearts and imagination of all that visit our studio.

This is truly a project by and for the community that enjoys a world-wide following. We have had visitors from numerous countries from every continent and many island nations, and average a good 2,000 visitors a month – this, while currently being four-ish years from being an operational carousel.

No experience is required to volunteer. Simply bring a desire to maybe learn something new, to contribute to the community, to meet new friends, and to have lots of fun!

Admission to the carousel studio and museum is free so bring your family and friends and spend some time visiting this amazing gift that is both for and from the community. Please come and enjoy the carousel, as well as our riverfront park (directly behind the studio) and all the restaurants and shops that Albany’s vibrant downtown has to offer.
