This is being Moved to SGF, MO. Next door to Basspro shops #1 store. It is a great fishing sight to see. A great deal of angling history in one place.

Went over to the Bass Pro shop and talked to the manager. He told us that it has been sold and closed since April. WHY is... More

You've really got to be into fishing to enjoy this museum or it will bore you to tears. The Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World next door is more interesting.

The IFGA is the record keeper of the sport. This has exhibits of record fish and tackle. A serioous fish person will love it, a non angler maybe not so much after a quick look at sharks and marlin, etc.

We went to the museum after our RCC cruise. I like to fish, but my wife has no real interest. It was great. The "fish art work" out of old/recycled stuff was really great.

I'm not a fisherman or into fishing, but I did find this museum quite enjoyable. It's informative and the displays are very nice. My daughter enjoyed it, but it is mostly for fishing aficionados. There is a lot of reading to do and most kids don't really enjoy that. If you visit you can walk next door to the Isla... More
