Learned a lot

Grandkids loved it, but we got there late so had to rush. Got real good pictures, and there was a lot of information so we actually learned stuff.

The museum was very expensive for what you get. One needs to have a large interest in fishing to get anything out of it, and even that is a stretch.

Seemed pretty pricey for what it is. If you are into fishing and old pictures of people who caught record fish then this is the place for you. Not a fan so felt it was overpriced. Was maybe there 20 minutes. Kids like to fish but they didn't even enjoy.

We mostly went here for my son. He really wanted to go fishing. He really like the big fish you could walk up into and mostly he loved being able to fish in the little pond. My daughter liked that part as well. We really did not go thru the museum part but if we did I bet it would... More

We drove an hour out of our way to be turned away at the door at 4:01. We would have been happy to pay and see the place in 10 min, since they close at 4:30. This place doesn't need your money. We won't be back.

Fun place to take the kids, but more suited for sportsmen as there are a lot of museum type displays with fishing records. There is a small outdoor playground and the kids did enjoy walking through the fish exhibits and of course climbing to the top of the big musky. (It is not wheelchair or stroller friendly) Admission is a... More

We stopped in here thinking it would be boring, but much to our surprise it was a very fun and interesting place. We got there too close to closing and we were not able to see everything we wanted too (and believe me, there is A LOT to see!), but we did get to go up into the big muskie... More
