The title I selected for today is very appropriate. I have wanted to go to the Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Museum for many years. Long before it came to Branson. I only missed it by a few years when I began this journey. I spent a week at the Calico Ghost Town RV Park which is very near Victorville, California where the museum was originally located. I understand that Dusty arranged for it to be moved here to Branson because it's location in Victorville was a little too remote and the Museum was not able to be ran successfully.

Well as best as I can tell it is thriving well here in Branson. I don't know what the museum was like in Victorville, but it is a really nice facility here. If you were like me and raised on a steady diet of the "good guy's always wear white hats" then you will enjoy The Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Museum.

The museum is loaded with many photos and mementos of the Rogers family. When I say family I do mean family. A large family! Roy and Dale either bore or adopted 9 children.  Some of the exhibits is about the family but by far the exhibits are of Roy and Dale.

Some of the exhibit highlights for me were the stuffed remains of Trigger, Trigger Jr., Buttermilk and "Bullet The Wonder Dog" and of course "Nellybelle" which was not stuffed :). One of my earliest memories of Television shows was that of the Roy Rogers Show with Pat Brady and his jeep "Nellybelle."

I could go on about all the different exhibits such as Roy and Dale's show clothes, their guns and holsters, boot collection, etc. Or the merchandise that was created and sold with Roy and Dale on them such as lunch boxes, candy, cereal, games, you name it. But if I did that there would be no reason for you to go see for yourself.

I spent about two hours walking leisurely through the museum then it was time for the show. The Live Show is twice daily.

The Show is held in the Happy Trails Theater and is a tribute to not only Roy and Dale but to cowboys and their music. The star is of course Roy "Dusty" Rogers Jr. with the able accompaniment of The High-Riders with the comedy sidekick played by Red Knickers.

The show lasted about two hours and is well worth the price of admission. So if you do make it to Branson you need to put The Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Museum on your To-Do list.
