This museum was very informative, very good for young children, and everyone was so friendly. There's also a very small gift shop and a great little soda fountain. Our 7 year-old grandson was very entertained. There were several interactive exhibits that he really enjoyed.

We drove through the area on a Sunday so the museum was not open but we did get our pictures with the large cows on display and enjoyed looking at the milk delivery wagon in a glass case outside. Fun little stop!

All our grandkids have come to this museum. Once the Diary Capital of the U.S. this region is still very active in the industry and the museum is a fun way to educate young and old alike.

The Dairy Museum is an interesting place. You don't need too much time to visit, it's very small. Admission is free! My kids had fun with the interactive learning stations. We watched a 10 minute movie in the beginning. They have question and answer games,...More

By having only one interactive display, this wasn't that interesting for an 8 year old. Many display cases of milk bottles, ice cream scoops, and some other displays. Small malt shop and smaller gift shop (closet). There are demonstrations for groups, but don't have a...More

This is a small, self guided museum of milk production through the ages. There are kiosks with trivia questions that are fun to answer. There is a small diner within the museum that serves meals and ice cream.

Good educational material, everyone can learn something. Price was right, free, plus the ice cream parlor sweet treats were delicious!
