Went with my husband one year and Once by myself a few years later. It was interesting especiall since my husband is a Viet Nam Vet. He really enjoyed it and explained a lot of the info and pictures to me. I go to Branson ever year and my husband has gone a few times with me also. He does not go every year because we have a dog who is now getting very old and does not want to leave him so I go alone or with a friend.I go every fall.

A small but powerful museum honoring the veterans of all American wars. Many of the displays are thought provoking and deeply moving. You’ll leave with a greater appreciation for those who answered the call, and paid the cost of freedom. Happy trails.
