This is always a must see on our multiple trips a year to Branson. My 10 year old son loves to see and feed the fish.

While in Branson, we stopped by the Fish Hatchery. It was very interesting to see how the fish grow. Definately worth an hour or two.

Learn about all aspects of raising trout, from harvesting eggs, to the 1 1/2 year journey to release in the Tanycomo.

I'm sure there is, just don't know where!
What are the hours for the fish hatchery?

Response from The_Good_Music_Man |
I know for sure they are open 9-4 weekdays, but Im not sure if they are open an hour earlier or later, weekends, or if they will be open during Nov and Dec because most places close in Dec until March.
Is this place open on Sunday's during the summer?
