The famous draw of this museum if the Beverly Hillbilly's old car, but here is so much else and it is super cheap to get in! Lots of rocks, animal displays, vintage items from the region's past, and it seems to go on and on! Just a few miles south of Branson, definitely worth a stop!

I couldn't enjoy my time in the exhibits because it was miserably hot. A student said the air is cooled by water, so when the temperature of the water goes up, so does their temperature. If patrons pay an entrance fee, I believe they should be comfortable. The collection is worth a visit when the weather outside is mild, especially... More

A very nice museum and well worth the price of admission. It features a little of something for everyone. Guns, paintings, the car from the Beverly Hillbillies show, as well as historical items from the Ozarks and beyond.

The reasonably priced museum at the Keeter Center is well designed with a wide variety of displays from country western stars memorabilia, to historical displays. It has three floors of displays with audio visual systems. We took our visitors from Chicago to the museum and their comment was that it was as interesting as the large Museum of Science and...

We visited this museum at the College of the Ozarks. It is a nice museum at low price. Adults cost $6 and children are free. Worth a look.

This museum has a lot of neat thing inside. Well worth the admission. Although I wasn't traveling with children. I did notice they had something for the kids to do while going thru the museum. Would definitely go there again.

Take time to see it in that you could spend hours there. We had to be someplace else and missed a lot.
