Everything about this place is amazing! The aquatic life, the activities for the kids to do, the learning center, but most above all the people who run it are what made this experience the absolute best.

Took the grandkids and really enjoyed it. There are many things to see, hands on things for the kids to do and people who are ready to answer their questions. Great entertainment for a donation.

This is a small free aquarium that doesn't have a lot, but is good for a 30-60 minute visit. The staff are very knowledgeable and helpful. Overall, good for a short visit if in Stockport.

A great place to learn about the sea life and ecosystems of the Texas coast. A small aquarium with several tanks that are eye level for the kids. They take a donation at the door, but otherwise FREE!
