The Albany Carousel has many hand carved and artfully painted animals. It is housed in a beautiful building in downtown Albany and a delight to children and adults alike. A nice gift shop is onsite as well. Worth the stop.

My daughter showed me the attraction before it opened. The craftsmen were still working on the antique animals and I was able to reminisce about the great carousels of a bygone era. A wonderful place to stop on a nice day out.

If you are traveling on I5 , this is well worth the stop. It is very interesting to see how the animals are made...all the carving is by hand. You can also see them being painted. The volunteers are great, sharing information about the process...More

It was interesting to see the animals being carved and to watch and ride the carousel. I loved looking at the antique horses but wish they had more.
