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.

The collection to see there is great. There is a lot of animals and fish to see there and it's a good visit for all the family. The price is a bit high. Worst is the amount of people visiting it, it's way to crowded....More

One enters on the top floor, which contains exhibits of birds, some small monkeys, lizards, and snakes. Marine life is exhibited in sections of the world where they are found. The highlight spot is where the fish swim over your head. We would not visit...More

We love this place from top to bottom! You start off in the canopy with the exotic birds and monkeys and slowly make your way to the bottom where you will find a beautiful, walk through, shark tank. Great experience for the young or old!

What a wonderful place! I came here expecting to see fish. Maybe some "big" fish here and there, but fish! Not only do they have fish, some teeny-tiny some ginormous, but they practically cover all of Animalia! I'm not kidding. I would be looking at...More

This is a really wonderful aquarium - so much to see. My grandson loves going here. The only draw-back is the price. I will think about getting a membership. Most memberships in Dallas allow you to bring a guest which makes it easier. As far...More
