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!

Dallas World Aquarium Reviews & Ratings

  • This was the best aquarium I have ever visited and I have visited many in different states. I almost didn't go to this on our visit earlier this year because I guess it's just not that well advertised. I even quarried residents of the city and many of them had not taken the time to visit it. I am so glad we took the time before we left. It is all set up like a natural rain forest with animals as well as fish and amphibians. One tip is to start at the top because that way you go downhill the whole visit. If you start at the bottom, you are walking uphill the whole time and that is exhausting. If you have a wheelchair or stroller, it is accessible but the pathways are not wide so it will take longer with other visitors there and there are a few exhibits that require going down a few stairs to see anything so those are not accessible. Overall a wonderful visit, worth the time and money, and I would be happy to visit there again. I got a lot of great pictures and had a wonderful time. They have sharks, birds, monkeys, sloth, fish, giant crabs, penguins and more! Saw more animals here than at the Dallas Zoo. Best Aquarium hands down that I've ever seen!

  • This place was amazing! Ridiculously expensive but totally worth it. The level one cafe was good. Forget about showing up for the events they have planned throughout the day! No direction/instruction on how to get there. We missed most of them.. I wish they would improve that! Animals are gorgeous and healthy. All the pens are very tidy. One of the best places to visit in Dallas!

  • I absolutely love this place! There are so many different animals and the employees here are great too. Parking can be a bit of a challenge but once you get in the experience is unforgettable. The exhibits seem to be well maintained. I definitely recommend if you are looking for something to do during free time.

  • Best Aquarium I’ve ever been to! Animals have big exhibits and interactive cage mates! Beautiful decor too! I would like to see a bigger tank for the octopus though. For such an intelligent animal it seems quite small.

  • My granddaughters 7 and 12 enjoyed it immensely. Just enough little furry animals to balance the collection of colorful birds, fish, reptiles and corals. Amazing displays with interactive screens to tell us what we were looking at. Wonderful, reasonably priced food at 1st floor with friendly staff.
