The C.W.Parker Carousel Museum opened in April 2005. It has three operating carousels, a 1850 Primitive Carousel, a restored 1913 Parker Carousel and a restored 1950 Parker Carousel. The Museum has many Parker artifacts. It tells the story of the C.W.Parker Amusement Company of Leavenworth, KS who made more carousels than any other company in the U.S. Visitors can also learn the History of all American Carousels. There are tours of the Museum that includes a carousel ride and also Educational Tours for school groups. Three party rooms are available to rent. The Museum has an all volunteer staff. Volunteers also restored the two Parker Carousels.
It is a FUN museum for all ages!!
