    Dallas World Aquarium

    1801 North Griffin Street, Dallas, TX
    28 reviews

    It's easily overpriced for the time you spend there (expect to lose a cool $100 for a family of four), but it's a great little place with a chance to walk underneath sharks in one of those glass tunnels, see a manatee, and observe a very bored, very neurotic, tiger in a way too small enclosure.

    Dallas Zoo

    Dallas Zoo, 650 S R L Thornton Fwy, Dallas, TX 75203, USA
    31 reviews

    It's not one of those world class zoos, even though the recently opened big mammal area is definitely worth a looking at. Good to spend a weekend afternoon, not something to write home about.

    The Sixth Floor Museum

    411 Elm Street, Dallas, Texas 75202, United States
    27 reviews

    The Sixth Floor Musuem in the old Texas Book Depository is a very nice museum, partly because they ask people not to take photos, whether out of respect for its topic or just as a courtesy to the other people. Oswald's sniper's nest is preserved and you can look down onto Dealey Plaza.
