    It's not so much an aquarium than it is an indoor zoo. If you set your expectations as such, it's a good place to spend 2 - 3 hours.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Much more than your average aquarium here. The full indoor curated ecotourist experience in one unlikely location. If you like this and are visiting Texas, check out the Aquarena in San Marcos.

    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!

    If you don't get there before 12, skip it. The line when we left at 1:30p was wrapped around the building. Nothing inside is worth that wait. Also, no reciprocity with other aquarium members.
