Things to Do in Branson: Visit the Smithsonian of the Ozarks

Off all the things to do in Branson, one fun stop is at the Ralph Foster Museum, just South of Branson in the town of Point Lookout on the College of the Ozarks campus. According to the museum's site, Ralph Foster was a local radio mogul who founded KWTO and who heavily financed the museum. It has the original 1921 Oldsmobile truck used in The Beverly Hillbillies TV show. It has other unique items as well—a rifle owned by Pancho Villa and the revolver that Morgan Earp was wearing when he was killed. It also holds many Native American artifacts donated by Foster from his extensive personal collection. If you are planning a trip to Branson, don't miss the museum that has earned the moniker the Smithsonian of the Ozarks.
