We enjoyed the wildlife and seeing the dam on our way to the lake. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. The kids had a great time feeding the fish. We will be back!

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.

We've been here several times. There's a short movie, small animals in tanks, and the fishery outside. We have small kids and they love it.

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?
