Feeling a little patriotic this weekend as I always do on Independence Day and it reminded me that I never finished this post. So here we go with one of the best Military Museums I have ever seen, it's in Branson, Missouri and it is... 'Worth The Drive".

It's called the Veterans Memorial Museum and it is very impressive. The museum honors all veterans just like it says on the sign out front with special emphasis on World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and the Persian Gulf Wars.

Amazing patriotic art throughout the museum.
Not sure how long it took to build this model, but dang.
The Cavalry Soldier from WW1 - full-sized horse replica with everything the soldier and horse could carry into battle... amazing.
Ever wonder how big those bombs were that dropped out of B-17's in WWII? Here they are.
Real Deal weapons of war, M1 Carbine, M1 Garand, and the 1903 Springfield.

The .45 caliber Thompson Sub-Machine Gun.
All the names of Americans who died in WWII, yes, all of them.
Closeup of a small section of the list.
Uniforms on display from every era.
The amazing sculpture out front. No two were alike and I believe there was one to represent all 50 states.

The admission price was a little "pricey" but, for all you get, well worth it in the end.
