Overview

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.

My family and I were so excited to visit to Dallas World Aquarium, but were slightly disappointed. It is a very neat place, but is not very large and seemed more zoo-like than what I expected from an aquarium.

This aquarium is more holistic than most, giving you a look at ground-dwellers in the areas surrounding the particular waters of note. We visit the Red-Tailed Boa we donated several years ago, but he never waves.... Multiple levels, a little pricey, but worth a day...More

I felt I was in the jungle from the moment I entered the museum. Staff was very friendly. The sloth was at a "hands reach". There was so much to see didn't realized we were in the museum for 3 hours. Worth the trip.

This is the best aquarium I’ve ever been to. The design is really special. The majority of the time you feel like you’re walking through the jungle or natural habitats. Plus they have so much more than your standard aquarium sights- things like: A sloth...More

The aquarium is so much fun! All different types of birds,fish,sharks, and even a sloth! Most of the birds are behind netting so you can hear them and see them better. This is a great place for anyone who likes animals!
