For some memorable and fun things to do in Branson, check out the Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum here. Its star building is so popular it has become one of Branson's most photographed buildings. When visitors first see the building split nearly in half in a replica of an earthquake-shaken building, they reasonably assume it is based on what a California earthquake could do to a building. But they are wrong. It is based on a rarely heard about fact—that Missouri and not California has had the strongest earthquake in America, registering at 8.0 on the Richter Scale. This 1812 trembler centered in New Madrid, Missouri, was so savage it made the Mississippi River run backwards for three days. So for some Branson fun, check out this building and more at the Ripley's in Branson.
