Centennial Museum in Downtown Named 2020 Non-Profit of the Year

Downtown Branson’s Centennial Museum has been named 2020 Non-Profit of the Year, an award presented by the membership of the Branson/Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce and CVB.

The award was announced at the Chamber’s annual membership luncheon on April 22. Also honored were Branson’s small businesses of the year, which included Cakes-N-Creams 50’s Diner and The Track Family Fun Parks.

Located at 120 S. Commercial Street in the historic Branson Mercantile/Reish Shoe store, the Branson Centennial Museum officially opened on April 1, 2012, Branson’s 100th anniversary. The museum features many priceless artifacts from Branson’s early days, a historical timeline of Branson’s evolution as one of the nation’s top tourism and entertainment destinations, and rotating exhibits that are curated in coordination with the White River Valley Historical Society.

There’s also a gift shop with the area’s largest selection of books by local authors.

Admission to the museum is free, but donations are accepted and appreciated.
