The museum holds more than 2,000 exhibits honoring those who served in all branches of the U.S. military. Exhibits include sculptures, murals, historic artifacts, art and thousands of memorabilia covering WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm and other 20th Century conflicts. The walls of the museum are lined with more than 500,000 names of those killed in action from WWII thru the Cole bombing.
Many of the exhibits contain unique artifacts and recount personal stories from our veterans and families of those who lost their lives during these conflicts. This is an educational as well as emotional experience.
The museum is easy to find as it sits on Branson’s Hwy 76 “the Strip” and is land marked by the 50-man life-size bronze known as “Storming the Beach” (each statue is modeled after an actual combat soldier from each state). There is also a restored Huey helicopter flown in Vietnam and a soaring P-51 Mustang.
