We took our young grandsons (4 & 5). They enjoyed seeing the different tanks with the different stages of growth. What they enjoyed the most was the feeding tank where they could feed the fish.

Okay....it is a fish hatchery.....boring.....(from the kids). Then we got inside and they saw the displays and aquarium and the movie. Ok, a bit more interesting now. Feeding the trout was $3 in quarters and about 45 minutes of fun. We stopped on the way to see the Branson Belle.

I love fish hatcheries. Learning about the process of growing trout is so cool. They have the entire spectrum of trout from fry to 10 lb plus brood fish. The fee is reasonable too.

Nice little place to learn about nature common to Missouri and how the trout are raised from eggs to adults ready to be released to the wild.
