I wish I could say that I loved this museum but it was just ok. They had exhibits of uniforms from each way and various guns and other artifacts but it all seem old and dusty. I would have enjoyed hearing about the lives of the service men and women and what it was like for them to live and... More

If you like uniforms, go here. That's about all we saw. We did see my grandfathers name on the wall of KIA from WWII. But we saw uniforms. And then some more uniforms.

Our favorite stop in Branson. You won't leave with dry eyes and if you aren't already patriotic, you will be when you leave. We ended up staying about three hours. I wanted to read every story and the displays are wonderful.

The museum was well organized and we were able to get through the museum at our pace. They had list of people who lost their life on all the wars the US has been involved in (Large wars and small conflicts).

This museum is self supporting and really needs more visitors. The cost is nominal. You can see a wall of all military that were killed in WWII (I found my uncles name on the wall). It also lists all of the deaths during that time of military operations up to the present on walls in other rooms. The artifacts of... More

The website does not justify what the museum holds. This museum is not huge, but holds a wealth of information and gives one a sobering look at what effect war has had on this country and many lives

WE have been here in the past but not sure when. My son asked if we could go back (he is 13). It is a great museum and if you are a history buff has lots of cool items and information from all the different wars.

Really neat museum, very nicely done, but the young kids were bored out of their minds. I would recommend it for the older crowd for sure. There are a lot of things to look at, but also a lot of reading. You could spend one to three hours in there I think.

Very well done. Inspirational. Photogenic. Memorable. Enjoyable. Worth the trip if you are a vet, love a vet, have a patriotic bone in your body...well you get the picture. Stop in and recharge your Red, White, and Blue batteries.
