Closed for the season, re-opening the spring of 2014.
Located near the Ferris wheel in Navy Pier Park, the musical carousel was designed exclusively for Navy Pier. It's a whimsical work-of-art that recreates the Pier's golden age of the 1920s when a similar attraction delighted another generation of visitors. The carousel's 36 hand-painted animals represent the different styles found throughout the history of carousels. Horses, chariots and a playful frog are just a few of the featured characters waiting to carry children of all ages. The hand-painted rounding boards at the top of the 44-foot carousel depict scenes of Navy Pier's history.
You must be at least 42 inches tall to ride the Musical Carousel. NOTE: If child is below 42 inches tall, child may ride free with a paid adult.
