“Don't just go fishing, come here to appreciate your catch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Again, our hotel recommended us to stop by. I am glad we made the stop, although the salmon weren't quite running yet; too early. However, we were able to see the small baby salmon! Both the museum and staff were very informative, gave us an understanding of just how much effort the locals are putting into the industry and all. Very admirable; the pride and joy. A good place to take your kids as well.

“Nice short walk and interesting museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Park at the brigge and after a beautiful walk along the river you come to the museum where a lot of information about salmon is shown in a small space. The whole tour including the way there and back is maybe only 1,5h but it is worth it!

“I love the sound of a river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

The best way to get to the hatchery to park by the bridge and walk along the river. You might see fish jumping or a bear feeding. Just watch and don't get too close. It is a beautiful walk and shouldn't be missed.

“Well worth a half hour or so.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

The young docents are very friendly and knowledgeable about the working of the hatchery and the fish and other wild life. Ask about how different animals only eat specific parts of the salmon.
