Idaho Centennial Carousel
The Idaho Centennial Carousel is Idaho’s only antique wooden carousel. It is one of 170 antique wooden carousels still existing in the United States. It has authentic carousel music from an organ run on paper rolls, providing old-fashioned original sounds. The carousel is housed in a new building at Porter Park.
This carousel is a major attraction in Rexburg and a delight to people of all ages. It is considered a “jewel” of Porter Park in Rexburg. Although it is unique and has a rich history, it is not considered a museum piece but rather a working carousel for people to ride.
