Great information about fish in Missouri. Even a place to fish, and fishing gear is free for young people. Hatchery display and tanks educate visitors about the fisheries.

The property sits off the beaten path and has interesting displays to illustrate what it takes to raise fish to stock nearby lakes. There are numerous displays and the aquarium is wonderful. Gift shop has items worth consideration.

We visited after Jubilee Days at Warsaw. Very nice facilities. Much to look at and learn. All the tanks were drained. Maybe it was out of season? They had a very nice aquarium with sturgeon, bass, catfish and many other varieties. Nice exhibits.
