“I don't believe it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

I can see why the children would enjoy this place, however, it was way too expensive for what you get. It's a lot of pictures and stories with a few displays. While some of it was interesting, it was, in no way, worth the price. I would not recommend visiting this attraction unless you have children and money to burn.

“I believe it. But not for the price!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013 via mobile

It's a fun place. I believe all of it. But it's a bit pricy. The kids, young adults will love it. Lots of interesting displays including rodents playing cards.

“Weekend Get-away”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

My kids picked this attraction and they enjoyed it. At the price of admission though, it is not worth it. You spend most of the time reading signs on the walls. They do have some displays. I was partcularly interested in the full sized stagecoach made out of toothpicks.

“Kids had fun.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We took the kids there for something to do until we could check into our hotel. The kids enjoyed the 2 hours that we were there, so it was worth it.

“Tourist trap.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

It's a tourist trap in a tourist trap town. It has a couple cool exhibits and a few decent photo ops. If your in Branson it's worth a stop. Just don't get your hopes up.
