Events

 


The MOOseum is now OPEN for the season. 

We are open  every Saturday through the end of October from 10 a.m. to 3 pm.

On the 4th Sunday of every month (1-4 pm) we feature a local farm family.  They will share with visitors their experiences of life on a Maryland dairy farm.

  Learn about a Pre-Civil War Dairy Farm at the MOOseum on August 23rd - as we host the Hurley-Carter Family as they share the history of Henry Hurley, who at 21 purchased Flint Ledge Farm near Rockville in 1852.  Over the years the farm grew to over 400 acres and the name changed to Winding Lane, but the Hurley-Carter family remained, enriching Montgomery County's dairy heritage.  Join us for this very special day at the MOO.

Exhibits change & grow...

New in 2015 - The story of Milk Transportation grows and grows.  A Model T Delivery Truck brings the days of Martin's Dairy back to life - joining the Milk Train and the Metropolitan Line added last year.  The Model T restoration was sponsored in part through funding by Heritage Tourism Alliance of Montgomery County.  The new Delivery Truck illustrates the end of milk's journey - as it arrives at its final destination - the consumer.

 

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

 

Join us at the Montgomery County Fair!  August 14th - 22nd we'll have the newest member of the MOOseum herd of model cows in her stall next to REAL cows in the Dairy Cow Buildings.

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.

School & Scout groups flock to the MOOseum in September and October.   Contact us soon to plan your weekday or weekend visit.*

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