Exhibits change & grow...

New in 2014 - Trains tell the story of Milk Transportation.  The new Milk Train and the Metropolitan Line, created and enhanced through funding by Heritage Tourism Alliance of Montgomery County, brings to life this important part of dairy history in Maryland, detailing the journey milk took on the rails through Montgomery County to Dairies in Washinton.

Watch this space to learn about what'll be new in 2015! 


There are lots of things to see and do at the MOO!!!


Montgomery County's famous Holstein Bull, Astronaut, celebrated his 50th anniversary this year.  Our life-size model of him was on the road in this summer - including a special autumn trip to Wisconsin for the National Dairy Congress.   He'll be back in his stall in the barn in 2015, along with the rest of our model milking herd, which include Holstein, Jersey, Brown Swiss, Ayrshire and Guernsey cows. 

Share your dairy farm story!  See "See & Do", fill in and submit the webform so we can include your family farm in our archives & on the Dairy Map. Although Montgomery County is our main focus, any farm in the Maryland-Virginia Milk Producing Region can be included in the collection of our new Dairy Research Library.

We have many school & summer camp groups visit every year.   Contact us soon to get your group book your visit for 2015.*

With activities for the young - and young at heart - we look forward to welcoming you to the MOO.
