    One of the coolest aquariums ever! It's also a zoo! Contemplates an enormous variety of animals. When in Dallas, a must see!
  • Rishme S.
    Great place for families. Does get very crowded and long queue on weekends.

    All of it! I specially liked the several levels of the big aquarium, to see the animals and fish in their favorite places.

    More like an indoor zoo, which was just what we needed on a hot Texas summer day. All 3 generations of our family loved it.

    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

    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.

    They have such a great variety of animals. The flamingos were so gorgeous and I was in awe the whole trip. I would go again in a heartbeat. Next time I will try the restaurant!

    It's a great place, I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was amazing to be so close to the animals, you could see everything, it definitely is worth seeing!

    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!

    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.

    This place is less of an aquarium and more of a "jungle world" similar to The Bronx Zoo.

    Come early less crowding and able to see more. And yes the animals are active in the morning.
  • Keith C.

    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.

    Mediocre. I wasn't impressed and it isn't easy to move around with a group. It's a bit annoying and you have to have a lot of patience. Cages looked small too...animals didn't look sad though.

    Not a fan. Wandering through felt claustrophobic to me and for the animals too. Many better aquariums (like the Aquarium at Moody Garden's in Galveston) for the same price.

    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

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

    Don't rush on this one. Parking - Pay and Put the receipt on the dashboard! Look at the Guidebook given at the ticket counter and plan your visit. Every corner has something.
