There is a new attraction down at the DECC for Grandma's Marathon that you might want to check out.

It's not just a museum. It's a "Moooseum."

Kemps has their 53-foot-long mobile Mooseum parked at the DECC and ready for tours. Inside you can learn to milk a cow, get some yummy ice cream, and learn a little history, too.

Julie Myhre with Kemps said the Moooseum honors the dairy history of Minnesota and Wisconsin and is a way to help celebrate a special anniversary for Kemps.

"We are celebrating our 100th anniversary. Kemps is a local company, our corporate office is in St. Paul so we just wanted to do something really fun for our anniversary. We've been around for a long time," said Myhre.

The large trailer is parked on the west side of the DECC, near the William A. Irvin. The Mooseum will be open Friday 10 a.m. - 9 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m. - 2 p.m.
