If you are into collection cow figures this is the place to go. It is Cow Heaven. It may be more shop than museum but it still had a lot of cow figurines.

This is not a museum, just a store that specializes in cow knick-knacks. So if you like to decorate your home in cows, this is the place for you. Very cute.
