  • Price Tower Arts Center
    Looming 19 stories above the Oklahoma landscape, the Price Tower Arts Center was originally designed as the world headquarters for the pipeline masters of the H.C. Price Company. However, even at the time of its opening in 1956, the Prairie-style cantilevered building's origin far outstripped the reputation of its intended tenants: the tower is Frank Lloyd Wright's only completed skyscraper. The H.C. Price Company moved on in 1981, but its famous former home remained; today, the National Historic Landmark stands tall as the Price Tower Arts Center—a monument to American architecture and design of the 20th century. Inside, a range of rotating special exhibits often focus on the designs of Frank Lloyd Wright as well as works by modern artists, both past and living, from around around the world. These exhibitions include work from the center's permanent collection, which spans drawings, furniture, textiles, and samples of building design from some of the era's finest architectural minds. Docents regularly reveal facts about these pieces of art, and the design of the building itself, on guided tours to its 19th-floor executive offices, art-filled lower mezzanines, and the secret shark tank under the elevator.

  • 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.

  • Titanic – The World’s Largest Museum Attraction
    In 1987—75 years after the RMS Titanic sank—John Joslyn helped lead an expedition to the bottom of the sea to photograph the wreck and bring up artifacts. Today, the gigantic permanent and interactive Titanic ship museum in Branson that he founded holds authentic items from the Titanic numbering in the thousands and valued at $4.5 million. But the museum's accoutrements of Edwardian life—items ranging from cutlery to deck chairs that fill meticulously accurate reproductions of the million-dollar grand staircase, the third-class sleeping rooms, and the cozy second-class space between the floorboards—are only part of the visitor's experience here. Interactive exhibits are also a permanent attraction, letting families touch an iceberg walk the grand staircase, learn to steer a ship and send an SOS signal, and perhaps even meet the museum’s pair of dog mascots. The kid friendly environment welcomes guests of all ages. A ship walk through typically takes two-hours.

  • 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.
