If you ever wonder what a warehouse could be transformed into, pay a visit to the Dallas World Aquarium. The term ‘aquarium’ is an understatement once you see the huge premises. Not only do you get to see flora and fauna of over 15 countries, there are also theme based sections within the aquarium to add to the authenticity. The Mundo Maya (a shark tank) and Orinoco-Secrets of the River (a Venezuelan tropical rainforest tour) are just a few examples. The Dallas World Aquarium is home to many exotic and rare species of birds and animals both on land and water!

This is the most beautiful aquarium I have ever been to. The walk ways are so nice just getting in to the building. The manatee was one of the highlights for us that was so cool to see. There is a shark tunnel to go through with some really interesting sharks. There are bars inside with drinks including drinks for the adults. We will be visiting again in the future!
The Dallas World Aquarium offers a wide selection of exhibits and animals, expanded over three intertwining floors. There is so much to see that you can make a whole day of it with the family! There is day parking for a fee by the main doors, which is a small walk through a beautiful jungle landscape, and some bird and mammal exhibits before the ticket counter. It is handicap and stroller friendly, with multiple ramps and elevators through all of the levels and exhibits. It also sports three different restaurants and two gift shops. It's a little pricey, but definitely worth the money. The food is delicious at the Mayan Cafe from personal experience. You get an awesome view of part of the aquarium from your table, and sometimes some birds come up to flaunt. The wait staff and managers are fast and efficient. They took special care to offer us extra crayons and coloring papers for our son, to go containers, and even to go cups for our beverages to take throughout the aquarium. They gave us an exceptional experience.
This venue is much more like a zoo since there are several non-Aquarium exhibits. The layout of the facility is very interesting where you feel like you are in nature and not a structured building. The whole visit can easily take up 2-3 hours if stopping at all the sections. I visited during a holiday weekend and so it was a bit overrun by kids but it was clearly an entertaining and educational visit for them. The aquarium doesn’t have free parking or have student discounts.
This place is my favorite aquarium in the country. It is more than just an aquarium. You start out your adventure in the treetops with girls and monkey everywhere and work your way down to the huge ocean tank. It's a bit pricey but is well worth the price. I never pass up an opportunity to go her. Also, the food in the cafe on the bottom floor with the fish tanks is delicious and the atmosphere is stellar.
I've been here a few times now and love going. The open feel of the upper floors is very unique to this place. We pretty much have to go everytime my family is in Dallas just for my son to enjoy the tunnel under the sharks. Blows his mind!
