    Best aquarium I have ever been too! Coolest concept, not your run of the mill aquarium. A def must see!

    Not... An aquarium? More like an aviary.

    If you have kids, walk carefully and keep an eye on them. There are gaps in certain places and the young ones can really get themselves into trouble

    Never thought I would leave a bad tip. This place is awesome , BUT the staff can't control crowds!! Just don't come here when kids are on vacation, try regular weekends instead. Seriously. Just don't.

    The aquarium is nice, but many of the enclosures are not labeled. There are a lot of birds and monkeys as well. The penguin exhibit is pretty small. The shark exhibit is pretty neat!

    Very nice Aquarium and worth the visit! You have to check out the Shark exhibit it wraps around to the roof!

    Not really an aquarium, more like a rainforest/aquarium mix. It was okay, but I have seen better. Limited selection of actual aquatic life

    They have penguins!!!!! Enough said.

    A must see. DWA has a variety of birds, amphibians, fish, & sharks. Absolutely worth the price. Come early to beat the lines and hit the parking lot before 9am for $3 early bird spots.

    Friendly, knowledgeable staff whom will answer any of your questions, wonderful and immersive biomes, much more than what you'd find at your typical aquarium. The Dallas World Aquarium is top notch.

    Depending on what excites you go slowly from one ecosystem to another. I loved the Sharks, Penguins, and aquatic beings from various countries.

    Great place for kids to experience rainforest, birds and animals. Visuals are great, info about species cud be more accessible. Food areas are scattered all over :( Avoid holidays, it gets crowded

    If you come with little ones, DO NOT warn them about the birds possibly pooping on their heads. It doesn't end well until you get to the Manatees. But then, yay Sea Cows!

    There is so much to see here, from tiny frogs to penguins, a manatee and seahorses, owls and parrots and sloths. There are so many exhibits, be prepared to set aside a couple of hours.
  • Flavia F.
    One of the coolest aquariums ever! It's also a zoo! Contemplates an enormous variety of animals. When in Dallas, a must see!
