By far the one unqiue location in Branson. Learn about how fish are raised and transported all over midwet to stock areas for fisherman to catch trout. See fish from eggs to massive 20 pound. Feed the fish and se nature in its best.

I liked the fish hatchery. I liked the two headed snake the best. It did have some neat animals and loved the live fish in glass.

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.
