  • Hollywood Wax Museum Branson
    A replica of Mount Rushmore reigns over the Hollywood Wax Museum—but instead of bearing faces of American presidents, the mugs of John Wayne, Charlie Chaplin, Marilyn Monroe, and Elvis welcome visitors into the museum's collection of celebrity wax figures. Each lifelike figure is meticulously crafted over the course of three months, resulting in uncanny stand-ins for stars such as Lucille Ball, Samuel L. Jackson, Willie Nelson, and Will Smith. Counter to the velvet ropes and glass cases of most museums, guests of the Hollywood Wax Museum can walk right up and touch their favorite figures, getting a taste of fame as they share the spotlight with them for unique photo ops. Celebrity trivia accompanies each figure across the two-level, multi-million-dollar facility, such as stars' accomplishments, the names of their pets, or which moon of Jupiter they own a resort on. After patrons max out on wax, they can head next door to Hannah's Maze of Mirrors, where reflective surfaces obfuscate players' paths as they rescue Princess Hannah from a wicked spell.

  • The Butterfly Palace & Rainforest Adventure
    In their native environments, tropical butterflies flutter among the rainforest’s palm trees and blooming orchids. The Butterfly Palace & Rainforest Adventure adds humans to that equation, permitting visitors to walk through a tropical aviary designed to be a living rainforest. Here, thousands of butterflies imported from rainforests the world over, including Costa Rica and Australia, freely roam alongside tropical birds and exotic plants. Other rainforest inhabitants such as red eyed tree frogs and chameleons reside inside The Butterfly Palace’s Living Rainforest Science Center. A nearby screening room hosts a documentary on the Monarch migration and a 3D movie of the butterfly life cycle. The facility's other immersive attractions include the Emerald Forest Mirror Maze and the Great Banyan Tree Bungee Adventure, simulating a real Banyan Tree from the rainforest.

  • Clinton House Museum
    Nothing seemed particularly out of place when a young man and woman moved into an unassuming house near the Ozark Mountains. They got married?right in the house's living room, in fact?and then started down paths that would ultimately change the course of American history. Seventeen years later, that man, Bill Clinton, would become the the 42nd president of the United States, and high school history teachers nationwide would be forced to update their classroom materials. President Bill Clinton and Senator Hillary Clinton started their adult lives and political careers in that now-storied one-bedroom house. Today, its 1,800 square feet serve as the Clinton House Museum, now on the National Register of Historic Places. Its rooms showcase both Bill's and Hillary's remarkable political careers, telling their remarkable stories through timelines, videos, and campaign signs.
