We thought this was a fish hatchery, but it is not. It is the way fish get up stream, but we weren't there at the time of year that the fish pass through so it was a little dull. No fish to be seen :(...More

This was a wonderful place to take my grandson. He loved it!! The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. There are a lot of hands on activities for kids of all ages. They even have a rattlesnake uggh but he was cool too.

Was looking forward to a nice visit to find that they were closed! The web site said they would be open and also had different hours posted on the door.

This is a must do. Super spot for a family, but we found our ages of 60 and 88 were perfectly suited as well. Be sure to push the fish buttons downstairs!

Went here on a whim. All exhibits were closed due to a "classroom" visiting. The "classroom" consisted of 4 kids and 2 disinterested "teachers". All the people who actually were there to see the fish ladder were told to come back later.

Located near the La Quinta Inn. Park in the lot and then follow the fish path (seriously) down a completely paved path. Listen to the water rushing by. Check out the lock. When you get to the bottom you will have a clear view of...More
