The MOOseum is now CLOSED for the season. 

We are open  every Saturday, May through 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 share with visitors their experiences of life on a Maryland dairy farm.

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


We closed for the season on October 31st, and look forward to visitors the first weekend in May 2017.

The MOOseum mourns the passing in November of Board member Carol Weiger who headed our Dairy Farm Family History Committee for many years.  Carol designated the MOOseum as recipient of memorial gifts, which can be sent to King Barn Dairy MOOseum at PL Box 76, Boyds, MD 20841-0076
