  • This is a excellent place to take the family. So many things to see. You can feed the fish and observe them in the underground observation windows. We bought a little fish food while there and feed the fish. Such fun and this is a free event. Take the kids and have fun
  • Really cool place to take the kids. They can feed the fish and see some huge trout. A lot of history here
  • The kids loved feeding the beautiful rainbow trout. There really is a bunch of stuff to see! We spent a few hour here and we could have stayed all day! We will definitely go back :)
  • Wonderful for families. Free. Donations. Pretty with town park and playground next to it. Ni e river view.
  • After you check out the monster trout in the big pond, make sure you walk to the overlook and save some time for the museum.
