This was such a little gem... we loved this aquarium. It is small, but well worth it! My kids had such a great time looking and experiencing the fish and sea life! My favorite was the little baby sea horses! So Cute!

Visited here with my daughters and was so disappointed. The exhibits are terrible--we felt sorry for the fish. Maybe if your kids are too young to know the difference, I guess it would be ok. Go to the aquarium in downtown Dallas instead.

I went with my teenager and two small children. The aquarium is inside the mall so parking was terrible just as you would expect at any mall. All the lots were full, and this was on a Monday morning. Overall, the aquarium was nice. I appreciated that the vast majority of the tanks and exhibits were visible from a toddler's... More

Although this is a relatively small place, they actually have a very good variety of ocean creatures. You can regularly find discount tickets if you look in local family magazines or online. This aquarium is located at the backside of Grapevine Mills Mall. There is a cool, large, shark exhibit you walk through as a tunnel with glass surrounding you.... More

Sea Life Aquarium and Legoland are located directly across from each other at the Grapevine Mills Mall and the combo day ticket is a very good value. We took our 3.5 and 1 year old here. Without a doubt the highlight was the sea life touch exhibit where he and a friend were captivated and took advantage of real interaction... More

Very small aquarium with a big price tag. This place definitely is a tourist trap. Went with out of town family that seemed to have a good time. There are much better aquariums out there though.

There are many interesting things to see at the aquarium. My 6 yearly really enjoyed it - he was able to hold some sea creatures and the view of all the sea life was excellent. Walking over the water with fish swimming below you was very entertaining to my grandson.
