About C.W. Parker Carousel Museum

Have a Merry-Go-Round Day! Ride a restored antique Parker carousel and tour the museum dedicated to telling the remarkable story of C.W. Parker, the "Carnival King". Charles Wallace Parker made Leavenworth, Kansas the carousel capital of the world by producing more carousels in Leavenworth than any other city in the United States.

C.W. Parker brought his amusement company to Leavenworth in 1910. A beautifully restored 1913 carousel from those earliest years, gives a unique ride to the young at heart of all ages. The wooden 24 horses, 3 ponies, and two rabbits are all hand-carved. In addition to the rare rabbits on this machine, there is also a "lovers tub" that spins when the mechanism is turning, and a 'chariot' is available for the handicapped.
