If you find yourself along highway 65 in the southern part of Missouri, make sure to plan a day at the Ralph Foster Museum near Hollister (MO). The Ralph Foster Museum is located inside the College of the Ozarks and offers visitors three floors of items related to the Ozark region.
Although the museum covers everything from handmade dolls and antiques to weapons and natural history, one of the most popular attractions is the original truck used in “The Beverly Hillbillies”. The museum is air-conditioned and has an elevator for those who are limited on stairs.
While you are there, don’t forget to visit the Edwards Mill and other attractions located on the campus grounds.
Admission to the Ralph Foster Museum is $6 for adults and $5 for seniors. Since the museum is located on a college campus, parking is only for smaller vehicles. So leave the rig and take the tow.
