The Grand Carousel


Everybody Rides

The Children’s Museum of Memphis has restored the 1909 Dentzel Memphis Grand Carousel. It has gone from being a hidden gem to being propelled into the national spotlight rallying Memphians’ pride in their city and bringing joy to future generations.

Be a Part of Restoring History

Currently, the Memphis Grand Carousel has been renovated by an industry-leading team in Marion, Ohio. The two-year process cost approximately $1 million.

During the restoration period, CMOM prepared a brand-new facility attached to the museum for the Memphis Grand Carousel’s return - fully restored and operational for generations to come. The total cost of this project was $4.5 million, which will be raised through our campus expansion campaign.
