Great displays. 8 minute film well worth the time. Walk outside after the film and see all the stages of the fish. Located at the Table Rock Dam and there are always plenty of people fly fishing down over the bank.

This is a free stop unless you want to get out the quarters to feed the fish. The volunteers here are very knowledgeable and seem ready to share things with kids. They go above and beyond for them.

The grandchildren love feeding the fish. They have machines that have the fish food. The cost is 25 cents. It doesn't cost to get in. But you can give donations.

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.
