The adventure at The Dallas World Aquarium begins at the top of the rainforest exhibit, where exotic birds, such as Cocks-of-the-rock and many species of toucans, can be seen. Lounging around are Two-toed and Three-toed sloths. Endangered animals, such as Orinoco crocodiles, Giant river otters, Antillean manatees and several species of monkeys are part of the many conservation projects. The aquarium portion displays interesting marine life, including Japanese crabs, jellyfish, Leafy, Weedy and Ribbon seadragons. Black-footed and Blue penguins can be seen swimming as guests enjoy the outdoor South Africa exhibit. Sharks, rays and sawfish are only a few of the fish living in the Mundo Maya cenote. Safe from Neotropical eagles, are euphonias, tanagers and hummingbirds. Reptiles and amphibians, both of significance to the Maya culture, can be seen throughout the exhibit.

To make a long, sad story short: my husband and I were supposed to be in Grand Cayman, celebrating our 23rd anniversary -- but due to circumstances I won't go into, that trip didn't happen. We were stuck at home in the DFW area, with...More

We spent a very nice Saturday afternoon at the aquarium. You'll be delighted by the meandering path that takes you on a journey that encompasses aquatic, aviary, and animal exhibits. The tunnel though the shark tank was really cool. The big black Jaguar was just...More

As the title of this review suggests, the Dallas World Aquarium is way more than just an aquarium! It honestly felt like going to Jurassic Park; minus the dinosaurs of course. It has a very cool layout. You start at the top of the ecosystem...More

This place has it all a rainforest, sloths, fish and birds among so many other animals. I really didn't know what to expect out of this but sure am happy we decided to go. You can even eat right there on site and it's tasty.

Went to kill time before evening flight. Was pleasantly surprised at the variety to see and the $21 price was a steal for what you got to see. In downtown Dallas with plenty of parking lots surrounding the facility. Would recommend to visit!

Not an aquarium, it's a zoo with aquatic species, birds and animals of all sort. The species are so varied that I think of it as "The infinite nature of nature." And the setting was also wonderful. Do not confuse with the Dallas Aquarium North...More

Too DART downtown to West End station. Lots of what looked like drug sales going on around that area so be careful. The aquarium is small but interesting especially for small kids - had two 3 year olds in tow.

The Aquarium was well laid out and was a lot to see. Was not much of an actual aquarium. There were more birds and other animals then actual aquatic life. The facility itself could use a bit of an update. Overall was still lots to...More

I believe you can but suggest you avoid crowded weekend visits. Narrow walkways and strollers could be uncomfortable.
