You can not miss the Veterans Memorial Museum in Branson. Just keep an eye out for the P-51 Mustang about to fly over the street and the statues in front, that the plane is flying over. The museum is bigger than you would think. It has an impressive collection of items and artifacts. Some are donated by area residents. It honors all of our nation's veterans, as it should!

Listen up gals! A great way for the hubbies to spend some time while the wives were at the outlet mall! The guys took plenty of time to roam the museum and had a smile on their face when we met up again later. Much better than dragging them from store to store with us!

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.
