    This is a great place to visit in the Texas hot summer months. A beautifully designed place with gorgeous water features and interesting combination of animals.

    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.

    Worth the money! Wish it was bigger! Unique animals from all over the world! More than just an aquarium it's also pretty much a zoo. While I wish it was not so packed when I went in , you definitely wont regret! However, I did went around the whole aquarium pretty fast to avoid all the crowds. Best to go during times when people are working and the children are in school to fully enjoy. The shark tunnel was amazing and the black panther was so cool! Food was not bad. Not great but, passable. A must see in Dallas!

    This is a multi-storey complex of wildlife, not just an aquarium. The most impressive, and surprising, creature that I saw while there was a black panther. They also house some of the lesser-known reptiles and amphibians from Mexico, which was nice to see.

    This is a decent enough aquarium and zoo, but it's organized poorly. You have to follow a path through the exhibits, meaning that a crowd can hold up hundreds of people if they take too long at any exhibit, which happened frequently while I was there.

    This place may seem expensive upon first glance, but the truth of the matter is that it is worth every penny. With wildlife everywhere in this indoor zoo, there is something for everyone here, from desert animals to jungle animals, to sea-life.
    The walk-thru shark tank it very cool.
    It is very humid, so dress accordingly.

    Truly one of the most unique aquariums in the country. The aquarium is located in heart of downtown Dallas, the interior of the aquarium is organized around a walking trail that spirals downwards. It almost feels like you've entered a tropical forest surrounded by both plant and animal life. The different animals (monkeys, birds, turtles) roams around freely in the re-creations of their natural habitats. From the top, you get a view of manatees swimming among the ducks and fishes.Each section of the aquarium is organized into the region of the world where it can be found. It's really so much more than just an aquarium!

    One of the finest aquariums in the country. It's one of those places that is so interesting that you just don't want to leave.

    It's a little misleading to call this an aquarium. True, they do have lots of fish and other sea life, but they also have a bunch of other animals like birds, monkeys, turtles and even a jaguar and much more. There are plenty of attractions to occupy the better part of the day.

    The Dallas World Aquarium has a large assortment of not only aquatic life, but birds and reptiles as well. It's a treat to visit!

    Great for families and groups of friends. Just a short drive from the house. Great exhibits.
