The children were amazed! Cheap they do accept military discounts. Parking is either $10 for 3 hours or $15 for the whole day. I would arrive 15 minutes before it opens, it tends to get packed rather quickly. Would recommend and will visit again.

I am not one for aquariums, I'd rather be in a history museum. However, my girlfriend is a huge fan and I had dragged her to plenty of my own places. This place was amazing, and I highly recommend it!!

Loved it. Many varieties of birds, monkeys, small animals and aquarium items. We had five adults and two kids in our party. The parking is $10 additional. Beware of panhandlers wandering the lot. We all had several photo opportunities in all the tropical foliage. The...More

Spent 2 hours here and it was well worth the price of admission. Interesting and educational. Great to do on a rainy day in Dallas.

Was just expecting a lot of aquariums, but the place is huge with lots of interactive screens and plenty of habitats to explore.

This place is not a humane place for animals. They have a jaguar in an enclosed space. Most species have very limited room to move. Yes, children like it but that’s because they don’t see the hardships the animals are in during. This place is...More

Dallas' slice of rain forest in downtown! The Aquarium actually has just as many exhibits of birds and other animals as it does aquatic life. At the right times you can catch curators bringing animals around the walkways right up close - the sloth is...More

Had a very enjoyable afternoon here today. The variety of animals on display is really cool. They have a Manatee! The whole rainforest concept is really fun. Go and spend the day.
