Pick 5: Branson’s Best Family Museum Attractions
This week we explore our 5 favorite Branson museums for families. Offering something for all ages, these attractions are both educational and entertaining.
The two-story museum, opened in 2006, is shaped like the Titanic itself, but built half-scale to the original. It is anchored in water to create the illusion of the Titanic at sea. The museum holds 400 pre-discovery artifacts in 20 galleries. The 90-minute, self-guided tour is designed to give guests the sensation of being an original passenger on Titanic’s 1912 maiden voyage.

Who doesn’t love dinosaurs?

These carefully constructed creatures are so exquisitely detailed; you’ll expect them to come to life at any moment! LOCATION: 3619 W 76 Country Blvd, Branson, MO 65616
