Located in the heart of Downtown Helena, Montana, lies the Great Northern Town Center with its retail shops, carousel, movie theater, hotel, science museum and class A office space. The centerpiece of the Great Northern Town Center is the Carousel. The Great Northern Carousel (Temporarily Closed through Early Spring 2019) while the Carousel Critters take their 1st vacation in 16 Years! And we will be making repairs and renovations. Thank you for your patience – we promise it will be worth the wait! Completely hand-built, the carousel is one of the world’s most stunning, with vibrant, hand-carved animals and adornments. In addition to the Carousel, the Great Northern Town Center houses the most up to date convention center in the city, the nation’s 10th Best Western Premier Hotel, an interactive museum of science and culture (Exploration Works), unique boutiques, restaurants and some of the Northwest’s top accounting, financial planning and engineering firms. Welcome!
