Stopped by the MOOseum because I like quirky little museums and this fit the bill. The museum is located inside the building for the Alabama Cattleman's Assc. There are three rooms, a video and some history of the industry in the state. If you know nothing of cattle you may learn some things. There is a rodeo clown barrel, cattle... More

This is a small and free attraction and me and my husband had great fun here! The strange computer man told us all about the history of cattle and beef production in Alabama and then we played on the saddles and in the little kitchen. A fun little place!

There is very little to do, my kids are 2 and 5 and lasted 15 minutes. We played in the dress up area and kitchen area and that's all there is to do. It is free but a waste of time.

This is a great place if you have small children. I had read it was $5 but we're told its free when we got there. It has kind of a creepy hologram face giving a little information about what is made from the cows. Then it had a area where kids can dress up sit in a barrel and work... More

The hologram guy that does the video is creepy but funny creepy. It gives you some information about what else cattle is used for some things I had no idea. Then they have a little area for kids to play, good for smaller kids up to maybe 10-11. It's free and a quick stop so if you have a little... More

Thought this would be a good placfe to take the kids on a hot or rainy day, but it really is just a bunch of information about the cattle industry in Alabama. Needs more work to make it more interactive and interesting to keep the kids' attention.

We recently visited Montgomery and were looking for something to do with our 4 year old grandson, when I wife learned about The Mooseum. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was actually very entertaining and not just for our grandson. I thought it was very cool too. The exhibits were set up in such a way to help... More

Took our 6-year-old granddaughter here on a visit to Montgomery. Sponsored by the Alabama Cattlemen's Association, it is a free educational center near the State Capitol. Apparently, mostly school groups go there, because we went on Columbus Day, and it was empty. But great fun for our granddaughter, who had the place to herself. There are several spaces for the...

The bulk of the Mooseum is just like a typical museum: videos, exhibits, pieces of memorabilia... most kids won't really find that engaging. But the back half is entirely devoted to play! There's a play kitchen with aprons and chefs hats; rodeo gear and saddles; a barrel; a stuffed cow. Really a cute place to let the kids play and... More
