If you love fishing and/or use Tew's products this is a free activity to learn about Tew's and see older model rods, reels, and lures.

Lew's Ozarks Fishing Museum is small but interesting, and is filled with all kinds of fishing lures. It is attached to the store outlet, so that you can shop for fishing needs after visiting the museum. We enjoyed reading the history of the business.

The museum in my opinion is a side operation of the main purpose which is the reels and rods. They do have a small assortment of lures etc but the main gear are the exceptional rigs.
