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!

The Dallas World Aquarium, Dallas Reviews - Write a Review
This aquarium is definitely very elaborate and has many different animals which was so neat! However, we went on a Saturday and it was so busy we couldn’t really enjoy it. We had to walk in a line several times just to get to the next part, which I’ve never done at a venue like this. I’d like to go back on a weekday when it’s hopefully not as busy. We like to take our time and see all the animals and we couldn’t do that. That being said, it seems to have so many hidden gems and elaborate enclosures. I loved the way it’s setup as almost its own ecosystem. It really feels immersive and interactive.
Calling this place an aquarium is like calling a shopping mall a store. While you can see a resemblance to an aquarium, this is just a primarily indoor rainforest zoo. It was well worth the money. The variety of animals and the available information about the animals was good. The information was available on touchscreen devices that were located next to each habitat. The quality and variety of the exhibits warrants a 6 star rating... Unfortunately, the state of the facility loses 2 stars. The day we were there was rainy. The building leaked. It leaked in many spots. A few exhibits were empty for repairs etc., not unexpected in such a facility, which means that it does not lose anything for that. However, one exhibit was being actively welded while they were operating. While the safety concerns of that will elude most people, the big issue was that it had set off the fire alarm. The sound had been silenced, but the flashers were flashing the whole time that we were there. It was annoying. It gave my mother a headache. The employees were complaining about the flashing. Everyone was annoyed. Though we did not use any elevators, one of the elevators was not functioning for some reason. Some repairs need to be performed on the facility. On a more positive note, we got some good pictures. I posted those to google.
Visited here from our if town at a friends suggestion. We had a great time, the way it is set up you start at the top of the ecosystem in the trees and circle down to the bottom of the water. Although it is advertised as an aquarium it has so much more to see, birds, monkeys and my favorite was the sloths. They have a 3 toward sloth that is out in the open where you can see it without glass. We also ate at the restaurant at the 3rd floor right off the elevator and it was wonderful, low prices, great service. The taco salad was great.
I don't even know where to begin with this place. It's amazing and has so much to see. It's huge, full of animals of all sorts. It isn't just water animals either. This place can be very crowded and busy, as it's popular with travelers and locals, but it's really always a treat to see the animals here as well as the layout. The staff here do a really great job of taking care of the place. I would recommend going during a time when it isn't busy. I made the mistake of going in the summer, when it was VERY busy, but still had a great time. Would definitely go here again on a visit to Dallas.
This is my favorite aquarium in Texas. Absolutely amazing. I have been visiting several times a year for a decade. They always have new exhibits. The staff is knowledgeable. The animals are well cared for. It is handicap and stroller accessible. A wonderful place to visit for everyone of every age.
