College of the Ozarks

College of the Ozarks, known as "Hard Work U," is more than a college. It's a destination with tons of family-friendly activities, including two museums, an old-fashioned grist mill, fruitcake and jelly kitchen, stained glass studio, and exquisite 4-star dining at Dobyns Dining Room in The Keeter Center. It's a great way to spend a day while you are in the Branson area. The only thing that requires admission is the Ralph Foster Museum ($6 Adults, $5 Seniors, and Free to all 18 and under). Dobyns Dining Room offers a farm to table experience without breaking the bank. Come learn why this unique college is nationally known.

Nice campus to visit while in Branson. Get some student made ice cream or other gifts that are available in the store in front of the campus.

Sight & Sound Theatres

Sight & Sound Theatres is the nation's largest Christian theatre company and one of the highest attended live theatres on the East Coast and in the Midwest. This inspiring family experience includes a majestic 2000-seat theatre, a massive 300-foot wrap-around stage, a professional cast, spectacular sets up to 40 feet high and a variety of live animals. Go back in time and witness the greatest stories of the Bible as they come to life right before your eyes!

Whatever Sight and Sound is showing when you come to Brandon, DON’T MISS IT! We’ve seen Ruth, Joseph, Jonah, the Miracle of Christmas, and (most recently) Samson. They have all been top notch. Please be aware that the writers/producers take quite a bit of liberty with the stories, although they definitely try to not add anything that would go against what the Bible says. I have a few serious issues with some of their basic doctrines, but I know that going in. I don’t go to learn the Bible (I have a degree in Theology). I go there to enjoy a family-friendly, Bible-based drama. I highly recommend it!

The Ralph Foster Museum contains a vast collection of artifacts with special emphasis on the history and culture of the Ozark Mountain Region.

Reviewed By LmDalton - American Fork, Utah

The show was professional and polished—a little too polished. This family is definitely talented, and the music was fun and diverse. The light show was impressive, but I got the feeling that a lot of it was purposely distracting from the performers, who lacked energy—probably because they were lip syncing and not playing their instruments half the time.

The end of the show employed a blatant tactic to force a standing ovation, by paying tribute to US veterans with a few seconds of the National Anthem. It’s not necessary to stand for the anthem, but most people don’t know that, so people started standing up. Far be it from me to remain sitting when a Midwest crowd stands to show their patriotism. I didn’t want to be beaten up in the parking lot after being taken for a commie. So I gave a standing ovation along with the rest of the crowd. At least it got people moving out of the building faster.

We were entertained, and it wasn’t a waste of two hours, but we’ll probably pick something else next time.

HUGE orchid collection. Mostly cattleyas but also one greenhouse full of other varieties. Also, one of the most enormous staghorn ferns I've ever seen. Well worth a look.

Gaetz Tractor Museum

Reviewed By John R - Whitehouse, Texas

This is a must-see museum if you like old tractors. While I’ve seen bigger collections, I don’t think I’ve seen nicer examples of restoration. On top of that this a free museum and you can take your time looking without anyone rushing you along. Consider this a must stop is you like old farm equipment.

Stopped in here with my bestie while at the landing! Great selection of games and attractions for all ages! Pricing was decent, especially for an arcade! Prizes were also great and attainable. I remember going to arcades as a kid and only getting crap but not at Arcade City! And there was a selection of prizes for all ages, not just kids! Can’t wait to go back and play again!
