Over the past 35 years, I have been about 6 times and it is just great every time. The travels of Foster are somewhat chronicled in the many things he did and collected. Inexpensive and well worth the time.

You will be amazed at all the interesting memorabilia that you will see if you go to this museum. My grandson loved the guns and The Beverly Hillbillies car was a hit.

The Ralph Foster Museum was an enjoyable adventure through multiple exhibits that indeed were most interesting. The Beverly Hillbillies rustic truck brought back many fond memories of a time long ago when television shows actually were wholesome and not offensive. The Rolls Royce was captivating as were the numerous displays to many in number to name. I thoroughly enjoyed the... More

This place is located on the college campus. Plan to spend some time here. There is SO much to see. The prices at the time were $6 an adult. Large collection of so many different things! Quilts, glassware, guns, knives, safari animals (stuffed, obviously)... The Beverly Hillbillies car is in here, as well. So much to see. It boggles the... More

It's amazing how much is under one roof. My favorites were the taxidermy animals, the hand-made English house on the first floor, Ralph Foster's office, carved ivory, and cameos. We were there for over 2 hours and could have stayed longer. Will visit again because I'm sure there's plenty we missed and there was a display that was in the... More

I have to go again. Thete just wasn't enough time to see it all in one day. If I do it again, I would go at the end of the day, then go again the next day.

Good museum with wide variety of interesting collections--something for everyone. Friendly and helpful staff. Great way to spend a morning exploring Branson. Entry fees were very reasonable. Be sure to see the restored schoolhouse and tractor museum also on college campus, both of which are free!

I had a group of 50 people. The museum was large enough to accommodate us with 3 separate floors. There were many different things to keep everyone interested. The favorite was the arms display on the 2nd floor.
