This is a great little museum about the cattle industry. Took my four year old son and he really enjoyed it. We spent about 1 1/2 hours there which was just the right amount of time. Everyone learned a little something. My son had a good time playing in the room with the dress up clothes, saddles, and kitchen. Great little stop if you are looking for something to do. Free admission and the staff is very friendly and informative.

We stopped in Montgomery to get off the road and stretched our legs. A few blocks down the street from the capital building was the cattleman's association building. Located on the ground floor was the Mooseum. We enjoyed learning about the cattle industry and playing with the interactive exhibits. We took many photos and it was a highlight of our stops for the day before we arrived at our destination.

After several disappointments in Montgomery with other attractions The MOOseum came through for us. Aimed mostly at kids (seemed set up for school groups/excursions), we two adults found enough to interest us to stay about an hour. There is information about cows, farming cattle, beef and everyday items you probably use but didn't know contain cow/beef by-products. There is also a dress up area for kids, a kitchenette (probably for when school groups visit), interactive displays (although one was broken when we were there), Coco the 'cow' and Dusty the Longhorn, free recipe cards and a gift shop with some reasonably priced merchandise. The lady at the counter was friendly and helpful.
This would be a good stop for anyone home schooling younger children or anyone interested in cattle and beef.
NOTE: The MOOseum is actually in the Alabama Cattlemen's Association building and there are no signs for the MOOseum visible from the road (we drove past twice). Just look for 'The Beef Wagons' vans with large cows on top outlining the various beef cuts in the car park and you will have found it.

This site is small and oriented toward children, but is still interesting. It provides a nice overview of cattle ranching in Alabama and is worth seeing if you are in the area and are interested in ranching or farming. They do close for lunch.

If you are looking for something to do for free for all ages this is a good attraction; you learn a lot about beef; small and not overwhelming for little ones and a lot for them to do

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.

Visited with friends and enjoyed learning a lot about the history of cattle in AL. Great place for all ages. Nice area for the kids while you may be reading the info.

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 to.

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 if you have kids.
