  • Absolutely excellent displays with "video explained " reasons as to why the Ozarks are much,much richer than one first imagines. I highly recommend a visit to appreciate the many valuable assets this country has to offer.
  • Been awhile since I've been but this museum is excellent. I personally could easily spend a couple of hours here. Definitely will be back.
  • Great unique collection. Would have liked to spend more time, but had an appointment to get to. Beware: it is not where Google maps says it is. Go to Keeter gym and turn left. As the sign says, 1 block.
  • An old- fashioned museum. Full of guns, stuffed animals, country music, quilts, but most of all the Beverly Hillbillies car!
  • Great under the radar museum on the C of O campus. Lots of exhibits of all types from art to taxidermy to musical displays. An extensive collection of firearms and the Beverly Hillbillies car were particular highlights for me. Low admission prices and situated on a beautiful campus.

Where to stay in Branson

Packed with good-value motel rooms, Branson offers decent accommodations at affordable prices even during the height of the tourist season. If you've come to enjoy the views of the Ozarks, look for vacation rental cabins, many of which are available on a nightly basis. A short drive out of town, most two- or three-bedroom cabins offer free Wi-Fi and fully equipped kitchens, along with access to enclosed yards ideal for hosting small parties. To stay in town without breaking the bank, look for mid-range hotels near Highway 76.
