You'll see a film explaining how they grow and replace trout in various locations. This is a fun place and you'll want to take your whole family and your camera.

We stopped here to visit, they have an 8 minute show that explains a lot about the hatchery and how they work. It was very very interesting, I learned a lot all in 8 mins. We had a lot of fun looking and feeding the fish outside. Everyone should stop and visit, it was well worth it.

There are live fish and reptiles inside the building with information about them. Outside are the fish hatcheries. You can buy food to feed them. When you get close to the water the fish come clustering, expecting to be fed. And best of all, it’s free.

Very interesting film explaining the process to hatch young Trout. Follow up by observing the stages of growth in the ponds with feeding the fish to view them up close.

These are amazing. Everyone who comes to Branson eventually is taken to the Hatchery, probably because its free and something people can awe and talk about forever.

As you go by the tanks, the open tanks, you see trout of many sizes... At some point they reach a size they then release into Lake Taneycomo, I think once a month; and its interesting. But they don't stop at that, or even that you can buy cheap corn and feed them, but inside they have a little fish museum that kids and adults alike awe at. I've taken many visitors to Branson to it and I've yet to hear anyone say that little 15-20 minute detour from the outdoor fish hatchery tanks wasn't worth their time. I highly recommend it.

Located at the base of the Table Rock Lake dam you will be able to view thousands of trout being raised for release into Lake Taneycomo. There is also an information center.

You'll need to walk a bit as you pass by many tanks containing fish at various stages of development. There is an indoor area that contains a lot of fish for observation.

Put this on your must see agenda when traveling to Branson. Its a free tourist attraction. You can watch a short film in the community room and there is a big aquarium inside and tons of trout outside you can feed..Bring lots of quarters and a cup to put your fish food in. Such a fun place to go!

Interesting to see all the areas where they are raising tons of trout. We enjoyed feeding the fish. You get the food from dispensing machines so bring a few quarters. You get quite a bit of food per quarter though!

All ages enjoy seeing the trout at the Fish Hatchery and even more fun to feed them. We liked the educational information too.
