You can see all stages of a fishes life here. they have indoor and outdoor tanks with coin op dispensers selling fish food. If you've run out of money, (not hard to do in Branson) this is a free attraction.

A fish hatchery doesn't really sound that fun but it was one of my favorite stops on our trip! Something different to see and adds variety to your vacation, and it's free! I learned all about the process of raising trout for the lakes(watch video...More

Stop by, free!! See a short film on the process, see the fish in the big tanks, inside and outside. Walk along and feed the fish and see how they grow. Bring quarters to buy fish food and have a great day

We did not see a gift shop. There is an attendant inside the office to answer questions, etc. And there is a small room that shows a video / informative movie that plays every 30 minutes or so... But nothing to buy.
