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.
