The King Barn Dairy MOOseum Barn at South Germantown Recreational Park will open for the season this upcoming Saturday, May 7th from 10am-3pm. It will be open every Saturday from 10am-3pm and every 4th Sunday for special Farm Family days until October (Admission to the MOOseum is free to individual visitors and families on regular open days).

“Special Events each year include Montgomery County History Tour Weekend, the last weekend in June; Montgomery County Farm Tour & Sale, the last weekend in July, and we’ll also hope to see you at the Montgomery County Fair in late August. ” The Museum’s History can be seen below:

In the late 1960’s the James & Macie King Farm was sold to the Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission (MNCPPC) with the understanding that it would become the centerpiece of a proposed regional park in an area of the county that was anticipating commercial and residential development. Thirty-five years later, South Germantown Recreational Park became a reality, with the King Barn the only building on the site preserved by the County. Through the efforts of the Farm’s family and friends of agriculture throughout the County a core group of organizers of the museum was developed. The Montgomery County Planning Board gave it’s unanimous approval for the MOOseum project in April, 2002. Once the site was defined and the original building restored, the Barn was made available by MNCPPC through a right of entry agreement, the King Barn Dairy Mooseum, Inc. began planning for a fully operational museum.
