My father-in-law, a veteran from the Korean War era thoroughly enjoyed the museum. I appreciated the real life stories behind the uniforms and displays especially of the roles of women through the years.

Although a very somber mood (as it should be), the curators at this site truly understood the focus of their goal in creasing an all-encompassing, well-organized museum. Some of the exhibits can almost bring you to tears and REALLY make you think. A wonderful job, all-around. THANK YOU for all your efforts!

We visited the Veteran's Museum for the first time while in Branson. It was packed with information that we had no clue about. Their exhibits were so neat and put together. We learned so much while we were there.

Loved all the artifacts. When you get to the room with all the names lost during WWII, it really hits you as to how many men and women lost their lives, defending our freedom.
