  • This place is clean, it is educational, and if you're a history nerd like me - it's fun too. Last time I was there, they had one of Jesse James' pistols w/ holster on display: his old Schofield...  more »
  • The museum was a little difficult to find in Bass Pro Shop, but once we found it, it was worth the effort to search for it. Admission is free which is a definite plus. Lots of interesting firearms.....  more »

  • Truly amazing how our American history can be traced through gun technology. The bow and archery section though smaller, is well worth the time. The guides are extremely knowledgeable and friendly.
  • I'm a longtime (20+ years) NRA member and now Patron Member, so I am obviously very supportive of the NRA as a whole. However, for the purposes of this review, I will only write about the Shooting Arms Museum and what it offers. Well, first of all, it's free to the public, for both members and non-members alike. Second, it's conveniently located inside Bass Pro Shops in Springfield, MO. They have a great collection of all types of firearms from cowboy guns to military to law enforcement and all the way back to the seventeenth century. Everything is presented with history and context.
  • Great Bass pro shop. Huge place. Full of museums both free and ones that cost. We did the free ones. Very interesting history on the fishing family that started Bass pro.
  • If you're interested in guns, this is the place to visit! It's free and located inside Bass Pro shop itself. Lots of steps to reach the doors... but otherwise, a wonderful museum of firearms. We took at least an hour just slowly walking through and still didn't see everything. A fantastic addition to Bass Pro.
  • Great little walk through even for people who aren't huge gun people. The history is very interesting
