Progress Continues on the Historic Albany Carousel

Albany Carousel progress

With sights set on an end of July opening, progress of the construction of the Historic Albany Carousel continues seamlessly in downtown Albany. Most recently, the Dentzel Carousel pole, a  restored 1909 mechanism donated by the Dentzel family, was moved into its new final home, the center of the structure, on Saturday, May 13.

To stay in-the-know about how this project progresses as we approach the much-anticipated grand opening date, visit the Historic Albany Carousel’s Facebook page and browse step-by-step photos, learn about Carousel events, and be the first to find out when the Grand Opening date will be announced! Visitors are welcome to the studios and museum.
