“For the bovine inclined only”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

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.

“A fun time for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

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 young people get a better understanding of cattle, cattlemen and life on a farm in general. A very interesting couple of hours!

“Great fun for the little ones”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2011

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 kids to play in. Her favorites were the dress-up room, where there are boots, chaps, vests, and cowboy hats of various sizes and colors, plus low-mounted saddles to pose on in your outfits. Next was the kitchen, where the nutritional value of beef is the theme, but when you are 6, the long chef's apron and chef's hat is much more fun. There are kitchen cabinets to open, a pretend stove and refrigerator, plus table and chairs. Not to mention a giant fabric hamburger you can take apart and serve. If you can read, there is lots of information around. There are also "stuffed" cows you can pose with, and a "cowboy" with a projected face who "talks" to you about cows and cow-raising, while you sit on haystacks and listen. There are also displays of products made from cows, and a gift shop. The staff was very friendly and even provided a coloring book. Well worth the visit. Web: www.bamabeef.org. We spent about 1 1/2 hours there, but there was no one else to share with. Age range would probably be 4-10.

“Great place to take the kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2011

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 really interact with a museum's purpose.
