This is a great FREE tour to take if you're in the area. If you go behind the hatchery there was also an awesome view of the dams. A quarter will also let you feed the fish.

Knowledgeable people working there that can explain their facility. Neat displays. A little smelly, but there are a lot of fish! My grandsons would have loved to see yoo close all the fish at different stages.

We always visit the fish hatchery when we come to Branson, MO. It is a treat to see all of the young trout being raised at the hatchery. A must do event when coming to Branson.

Take your time , Walk around and see trout of all differant sizes. Fish food there so you can feed them. They release several fish into lake Tanercomo every year. making it 1 of 3 great fishing lakes there at Branson Mo.

We visited on earth day and it made the trip even better. There were lots of interactive activities and of course feeding the fish. A tour here may make you crave trout for dinner, or at least want to go fishing!

1 hour, max maybe 30 minutes, if that. I saw the video, every trout pond, fed the fish, saw the aquarium from both outside and inside, and saw everything inside. If you plan on fishing or going on a trail, plan more time.
