Shipwrecked Treasure Museum at Branson Landing
Venture leagues below the sea to uncover the mysteries of the ocean at Branson's new Shipwrecked Treasure Museum! Located at the Branson Landing, this informative showcase is dedicated to educating guests on the wonders of treasure hunting via extensive exhibitions, displays, and state of the art interactive features that will transport you into the role of treasure hunter! Bring the entire family along for a day filled of fun and adventure.
Upon entry into the treasure museum, you will be greeted by nautical-themed decor and exhibitions that will absolutely blow your mind. Explore artifacts pulled deep from below the sea belonging to three significant shipwreck sites: the Tortugas, SS Republic, and the SS Gairsoppa, each with their own interesting histories and artifacts that have even been shown on National Geographic and the Discovery Channel.
The objects found at this museum all suit several categories. Explore treasure including gold coins and Spanish reales, see artifacts such as weaponry and one-of-a-kind items, and explore the world around you through interactive exhibitions such as the Seafloor and Pirate Knots exhibit. The following exhibitions are available for exploration:
Treasure Exhibits: Currency is what makes the world go round, and this was true in the times of these shipwrecks as well. With the treasure-themed exhibits, guests can discover everything from Concreted Coins and Spanish Reales to 77 SS Republic Half Dollars and massive and authentic WWII era silver bars complete with ID number and a stamp of authenticity.
Rare Items: Some of the most intriguing items are those that are one-of-a-kind, and the treasure museum is brimming with them! Explore items such as the Blue China Ginger Jar from the Blue China wreck site, original portholes from the SS Republic, nad more than 6,000 glass bottles and a never-before-seen collection of perfectly preserved foods. You will also be able to see the Porcelain Couple which was featured on National Geographic and the Discovery Channel, as well as the original bell from the SS Republic.
Weaponry: Explore the art of weaponry with genuine items such as cannonballs and lead shot, a cutlass, blunderbuss, and saber. These artifacts provide interesting insight into the piracy of the past.
Interactive Exhibits: Perhaps one of the best parts of visiting this museum is the multitude of hands-on experiences that are available to you. Explore the wonders of this shipwreck world through exhibits including the Forty Thieves Pirate art, an interactive Seafloor complete with animatronic sharks, and games like tying pirate nights and memory matching to entertain the kiddos. You'll also be able to 'Build a Buccaneer' and 'Hoist the Booty'.
Throughout the museum, you can watch various film displays of real Shipwreck footage gathered by Odyssey. Operate a replica of Zeus and try to pick up coins, navigate an interactive photomosaic, and see if you can identify rocks from treasure. Among the artifacts, replications, and unique artifacts, you and your loved ones will have an amazing time learning something new!
