Such a popular event last fall, we just had to add this tour to our regular roster. Moo-ve through the historic agricultural campus and learn about the scientific discoveries made within these 19th-century buildings of varied architectural styles. It’s so much more than cows (although you may see some of those too!). Meet at the entrance to Allen Centennial Garden, 620 Babcock Dr. Tour length is approximately 1½ hours. 

On the day of the tour, pick up a complimentary small ice cream cone or dish at the Babcock Hall Dairy Store, 1605 Linden Dr.

No advance reservation required! Purchase tickets the day of the tour at the meeting place.
