This attraction is a great educational site. They have all the different weapons and kits the troops took into battle. You see how the weapons have changed for each era of history. I especially found meaningful the time when my husband and I found my brother's name and his uncles name on the list of fallen soldiers.

The building doesn't look like much, but the inside is amazing. It focuses mainly on the the First and Second world wars. The Vietnam section is great too. Definitely worth checking out while in Branson!

Very educational. It was a small museum but was very interesting and eye opening. It is something that everyone should see.

This museum is packed full of military history and artifacts. Separated by war and generation, the display is easy to follow and very interesting. It doesn't look very big from the front, but there is more thane nought to keep you busy for a couple hours.

We enjoyed looking around at all of the different uniforms and all of the information from the wars. There is nothing we disliked about this.

I'm not a big fan of Museums but this one is a "must see"! I thoroughly enjoyed going thru it and found it very interesting. So glad the tornado didn't destroy these irreplaceable treasures!

This military museum is quite different than most. Its main feature is the persons, not just the events and equipment. I love the events and equipment, but as with "American Sniper", the human side is often lost. Not so here, if you want to learn about units or individuals that served our nation, this is the place to go. The... More

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
