The Bagnall Dam Historical museum is worth visiting. Interesting, easy to walk through, and lots of fascinating exhibits and information. Free!! Donations accepted. The Lake Area Master Gardeners maintain the gardens, including an herb garden, a pollinator garden, and a rain garden. Lake Ozark Master Naturalists are on hand during Eagle Days - Jan 7-8, 2017 for Bald Eagle spotting... More

Very good overview and photos of Lake of the Ozarks area before the dam and after it was built. Lots of memorabilia and locals accounting their stories.

Willmore houses a museum dedicated to the history of the building of Bagnall Dam and how the Lake of the Ozark came to be. There are also wonderful views of the Lake from their balcony and the great room.
