It’s raining. It’s pouring. Don’t let your vacation be boring!

A rainy day in Branson doesn’t mean you’re stuck sitting in a hotel room. Get out and get in! Branson has so many indoor activities to offer.

You’ve never let anything stop you before. And you’re not going to let a rainy day stop you now. It’s time to discover all the things to do in Branson on a rainy day!


Get back to where it all began and see a show. There’s a reason Branson is nicknamed the “Live Music Capital of the World” and it’s your duty to see why. Live shows are the root of the community and a great option when trying to get away from the rain. With over 100 live shows to choose from, it’s difficult to know where to start. We recommend the following:

Dolly Parton’s Stampede

Offering dinner and a show, Dolly Parton’s Stampede is Branson’s most fun place to eat! While you enjoy a four-course family feast expect to be in awe of a powerful performance that fills the 35,000 square foot arena. Trick riders, top speed stunts, and a little friendly competition are just the beginning.

Presley’s Country Jubilee

A trip to Branson wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the original show on the strip. Presley’s Country Jubilee started in 1967 as the first live music theatre in town and has been entertaining guests every year since. You’ll experience a one-of-a-kind mix of bluegrass, gospel, country, and hilarious comedy.

The Haygoods

Discover the talents of this amazing family. The Haygoods are a group of siblings with 30 years of experience playing music together in Branson. With a wide variety of music and over 20 instruments played during each performance, there’s something for everyone in your family to enjoy.


With countless shops, unique boutiques, and never-ending specialty stores, Branson is a shopping heaven. And a rainy day is the perfect excuse to shop ‘til you drop! The Best Shopping in Branson is waiting and it’s time for you to get started.


Stay dry and uncover the facts while learning something new. Museums in Branson aren’t your typical boring information hanging on a wall. They’re fun! Discover the past in ways you never have before starting with the following:

Titanic Museum

Experience the world’s most famous luxury liner first-hand at the Titanic Museum. At this living museum, you receive the boarding pass of an actual crew member or Titanic passenger and travel through time surrounded by hundreds of artifacts from the shipwreck. There’s even a real iceberg you can touch and varying decks you can try to stand on that display how fast the sinking progressed.

Branson Auto & Farm Museum

View two acres of vintage farm equipment and vehicles at the Branson Auto & Farm Museum. With a collection dating from the 1900’s all the way up to the 2000’s, there’s something for everyone in the family to enjoy or reminisce on. Find something you really like? You can buy it! Most displays are for sale and the museum is always acquiring new and interesting pieces.

Hollywood Wax Museum

Arrive in style at the Hollywood Max Museum where you walk the red carpet and find your favorite stars from movie, music, and television. This museum isn’t just about the stars. It’s about you too! Props, costumes, and more allow your family to become a part of the display and rub elbows with your favorite celebrities.
