Sadly, this place was knocked down by Hurricane Harvey. There are plans to rebuild and make it better than ever. By the way, all of the sea-life was saved as they were moved before the storm.

The Aquarium is gone. You can thank Hurricane Harvey for that. Rockport is working on recovery, so come here and enjoy what's here. The Aquarium will not be one of those things.
