Downtown Aquarium, Houston Reviews

Google+
  • Pretty small in comparison to other facilities, but overall a good experience. Eating in the restaurant upstairs makes the visit worth it. And while the facility is smaller, the variety of animals was a bit surprising. Beautiful fish impressively sized animals such as groupers, porcupine fish, skates and rays were great to see. Amusements/rides are a nice touch if that's something you enjoy.

  • Lots of fun! Loved the white tiger, absolutely beautiful. Feeding the stingrays was really neat. Rode the train, loved how it went "through" the shark tank, wish it was a longer ride. All the fish were beautiful. Wish it was bigger overall but still worth the cost.

  • Nice little aquarium. Quite crowded when I was there, but worth the trouble. There are a handful of rides, which aren't worth the trip themselves, but which add to the overall experience. Here's a tip: save money and instead of paying for the aquarium, just have a drink upstairs in the restaurant because the largest and best fish tank is there!

  • Although I wish it were larger; my family had an excellent time. My two year old loved feeding the rays. It was a fabulous time even though we were there on spring break. Everyone was extremely courteous and friendly. Can't wait to go back on a not so busy day with my family.

  • The aquarium is nice, but much smaller the other aquariums I've been to. There is a mini-theme park outside of the aquarium which was nice (Ferris wheel, carousel, drop tower and train ride). We went as two adults, but still did most of the rides. The biggest complaint was that the best parts of the aquarium are hidden. My fiancee didn't was to go on the train ride, but I dragged him on and it brings you under the shark tank... you don't get to see the sharks unless you take the train. Same thing with the restaurant. We weren't going to eat there, but the host said we could go up and look at it. The biggest tanks with the biggest and coolest fish were in the restaurant... and we were going to miss out.
