A fishing friend and I went and really enjoyed it. The curator, owner gave us a guided tour. It was extremely informative. Anyone interested in fishing or history would enjoy it.

I have been here over 10 times and still see something new each time. The collection is a treasure, and Branson is so lucky to have it. Bill is so knowledgeable and passionate in running this fishing museum. Karl and Beverly White have spent a lifetime collecting all of this. I want to thank them for letting us see there collection.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the fishing museum. We were lucky to have Bill show us the lures, gear, and other pieces of fishing history that make this museum unique. What made this visit even better for us is that Bill gave us 90 minutes of his time sharing stories and details behind the equipment and fishermen. For visitors who enjoy fishing, this is a tremendous place to see and learn how this sport has changed over time.

Bill is excited to share his passion and knowledge with everyone that comes through the doors on this self-guided tour. This is a great museum to visit for young, old and in between!

I went with my husband because he is obsessed with fishing. I thought okay this will be for him, but I really enjoyed it! The man giving the tour was very knowledgeable, funny, and relaxing to listen to. Very well done tour and I can honestly say I left there having learned a lot! Recommend for the die hard fishermen/women, but also for those that might not be that into it. LOVED!

The History of Fishing Museum is an excellent museum advertising an antique fishing collection valued at $5 million and more than 40,000 pieces and I believe it! This was a great museum to learn about the history of fishing and the collection they have put together is simply amazing. My favorite item was an original Skeeter boat in pristine condition. The curator Bill gave me a personal tour of the museum and he is incredibly knowledgeable. He is definitely passionate about preserving the history of the museum. I would highly recommend visiting the History of Fishing Museum and put it at the top of the list of things to do in Branson. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

The best part of admission is the tour you get by the guide who knows more in his sleep about all the things people have done and used through history to catch fish than most of us know in our best waking moments. Refer to something you know about fishing during the tour and you'll be rewarded with an abundance of additional information and probably shown some artifacts in the museum relating to your interest.

If you, your spouse, or someone in your party doesn't have any interest in fishing before the tour, what they will find out is that only second to dating, as humans we're ingenious at catching things such as fish for sport and survival! Fishing can take on a new meaning with the historical perspective you get from the tour. Going to the museum is not about just looking at fishing stuff.

This was one of the best museums we visited during our trip. The owner took us around and had fun and interesting stories about various artifacts, lures, poles, etc. It was a fun experience and the stuff in the museum was so cool to see.
