Branson is a popular vacation spot for adults with its live entertainment options, great restaurants, and natural beauty of the nearby Ozarks. Yet as great as Branson is for an adult getaway, it is also a fabulous spot for families. Regardless of how young or old your kids are, there are some amazing attractions in Branson that will really add some fun and excitement to your Branson family vacation. You will definitely want to include some of these attractions in your vacation plans.
The Dinosaur Museum is the perfect place to spend a few memorable hours with the whole family in Branson. The Dinosaur Museum is conveniently located right on the famous 76 Strip, and takes you on a one-of-a-kind prehistoric journey back in time. Here, you will see a few dinosaur bones, but the real highlight of the museum is the ability for you and your kids to stand next to life-size models of dinosaurs like the Parasaurolphus, the Microraptor, the T Rex and the Allosaurus. You can see just how tall or short you would be next to these incredible creatures if they still roamed the earth today. There are also other fun features here including special storytelling sessions and coloring stations.
Adults and kids alike will have a blast exploring the popular World's Largest Toy Museum, which is located on the 76 Strip in downtown Branson. The fun begins before you even enter the museum with a unique antique car sitting right in the parking. When you enter the museum, you will be overwhelmed by the incredible number of modern and antique toys in this museum. You are sure to see plenty of toys and mementos from your childhood including action figures, dolls, lunch boxes, trains, planes and wind-up toys. The toys range in date from the 1800s to today, so you are sure to see toys from your own childhood as well as toys you may have seen in your parents' or grandparents' heirlooms. This is a true blast from the past that you and your kids will both enjoy.
