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...More

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.

Took our 6-year-old granddaughter here on a visit to Montgomery. Sponsored by the Alabama Cattlemen's Association, it is a free educational center near the State Capitol. Apparently, mostly school groups go there, because we went on Columbus Day, and it was empty. But great fun...More

The bulk of the Mooseum is just like a typical museum: videos, exhibits, pieces of memorabilia... most kids won't really find that engaging. But the back half is entirely devoted to play! There's a play kitchen with aprons and chefs hats; rodeo gear and saddles;...More
