KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Mooooove Over and make room for cow week.

The Regnier Family Wonderscope Children’s Museum of Kansas City is celebrating all things cow with a week of cow-related fun.

The event will be held on April 12-15.

Joining Wonderscope’s resident cows during Cow Week will be Sophie – a cow that enables children to simulate milking provided by Midwest Dairy, where FOX4’s Marcus Officer had the chance to show his technique.

There will also be a variety of fun, cow-themed activities, games, and giveaways—all included with museum admission.

Here is the Cow Week schedule.
