Long Description:
As one can guess from the name, this museum is dedicated to cows. In the parking lot behind the building there are signs telling folks to follow the hoofprints to the Children's Education Center. There are several displays, films, and activities, including a chance to dress up as a cowboy or cowgirl. While it is geared to children, it is still fun for the folks who bring the children to the museum. The coordinates are at the entrance, but I have included photos from the parking lot behind the building.

The children will be entertained in the Cow Pen, Slim’s Kitchen, and the Rodeo Arena, where they can get hands on activities and dress up.

The entrance is located at 201 South Bainbridge Street, at the intersection with Adams Avenue in downtown Montgomery. Parking is behind the building.

From their web page listed below:

"Each year, about 10,000 school children and adults tour The MOOseum. The MOOseum opened in 1995 and offers a fun and interactive way for people of all ages to learn about Alabama’s $2 billion beef cattle industry. The hours of operation for the MOOseum are Monday-Friday, 8am-12pm and 1pm-4:30pm CST."
