This is a great museum! It won't take much time to visit, but the cow pics are great for kids! There is a lot of historical information, and a cute play place for kids.

The museum piece is small, but they have an OUTSTANDING interactive room. It is geared toward children, but I thought it could be really fun for adults too. I had an easy time reading all of the facts and I really enjoyed taking photos with all of the props. This is one of the best FREE attractions I have been... More

We visited this free museum with our young daughter. There are 3 rooms to visit: one on the history of cattles in Alabama, one pertaining to cattle production (with videos) and an interactive room with some dress up activities for kids. It's a quick 30-45-minute museum visit in an area surrounded by other attractions, so it's worth a quick detour... More

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.
