Inspire Family Creativity at the LeRoy King Carousel

Do you remember the joy of your first carousel ride?

What made that ride so special? Was it the sound of the organ music, the rush to find the “perfect” animal, or the motion that invited you to close your eyes as you galloped across a field?

The Children’s Creativity Museum’s carousel evokes that same feeling everyday. A gateway experience in our Imagine-Create-Share creativity cycle, our historic Looff carousel calls the young - and the young-at-heart! - to let their imaginations soar.

Launching into our
2022 Carousel Campaign!

National Carousel Day on July 25 marks the kick-off of our annual sponsorship campaign! Year-long sponsorships give you the chance to recognize important family and friends in your life on an animal or chariot of your choosing. Plus, donations of any amount support free rides for low-income families. Join us by making your contribution to our 2022 Carousel Campaign today.

A symbol of the spirit and resilience of San Francisco... 

Commissioned in 1904 and recognized as a signature attraction at San Francisco’s Playland at the Beach (1913 - 1972), our carousel was renamed in 2014 in honor of San Francisco Redevelopment Commissioner and civil rights advocate LeRoy King. 

Join us in thanking the 2021 Carousel Campaign supporters who helped us surpass our $25,000 goal!
