This is a great place to take the whole family. Be sure to bring comfy shoes because it's a lot of walking. I like that it's more than just aquatic animals too. It can be crowded especially during holiday breaks so just prepare yourself. My twins love exploring and reading about all the different types of animals especially the fish from around the world. It takes about 3 hours to see everything.
Welcome to the Rain Forest. On a whim, decided to go to the Dallas World Aquarium on a very cold, cloudy Monday in February. So, not so crowded at all which made it very pleasant to see everything and take time to enjoy. It warmed the body and the heart to see such amazing creatures from around the world under one roof. Well worth the $22.68 ticket price for one adult. I would like to mention the incredible beauty of the rain forest as it emanates through all the exotic tropical plants displayed in every nook and cranny. I was uplifted in spirit by the naturalness of this world class Jungle Exhibition. Will be buying a membership soon so I can have a fantastic space warp and slip into a Secret Garden for a day's delight on a Dallas pleasure hunt.
What a fun and interesting place! I was a little doubtful, since no one has ever suggested that I go there, but this is a very well put-together facility, both fun and educational, and a fun place to spend a couple of hours. Compared to other aquariums I've been too, many of them in coastal cities, this one is a little light on fish, but there is a walk-through shark tank (!) and a manatee and a few large tanks with the tropical fish that you'd expect to see, as well a nice collection of sea urchins. No jelly fish tank, no manta ray petting tank. But lot and lots of birds! Tropical ones! Including a veritable flock of flamingos! The aquarium is organized into several tropical regions, and each region is represented, it seemed to me, primarily by the birds. There are also some unusual monkeys, lizards, and penguins. And the sloth, who pretty much steals the show.
Wasn't expecting such a fantastic aquarium/zoo like experience. It is set out in a really awesome way using the space really well. It is very stroller friendly from my observations. I enjoyed seeing all the animals that don't live under water as well. It was a great way to spend a few hours on a Sunday afternoon. It was pretty busy but not too bad!
Honestly, this is the coolest place I have ever been to. I was visiting from San Antonio, Texas and googled tourist locations in Dallas and this place was popular so I decided to give it a try. No regrets.. I had a ton of fun and although it may seem expensive it is so worth it because the aquarium is huge and there are tons of exhibits to see while there. I recommend this place to everyone, even the adults. My favorite part was the tunnel with the aquarium overhead it was so near and a great place to take pictures.
