The MOOseum

Since opening its doors in 1995, The MOOseum has been the premier venue for children and adults alike to learn more about Alabama's beef cattle industry. Whether you're a history buff looking to explore the timeline of the past or a parent who wants your children to learn in a hands-on environment, The MOOseum is ready for your visit.

Allow our resident cowboy and tour guide, Adam Bainbridge, to show you a film and tell you a story about the cattle industry here in Alabama. While visiting with Adam, take a look around at the different breeds of cattle and horses you can find right here in our great state. You can also explore the different items that are made from cows. It just may surprise you!

After your greeting from Adam, explore the “Hoofprints Through Alabama” with a floor-to-ceiling timeline dating back to 1494. After you've brushed up on the past, head on back to learn about our favorite protein, beef, in Slim's Kitchen, dress up like a rough-and-tumble cowboy in the Rodeo Arena and learn about just how cool a cow really is in The Cow Pen.

Don't forget to have your picture taken with our Texas Longhorn "Dusty" and shop around in The MOOseum General Store before you go!
