It's in the mall and it's really nice, it's not bad. My only complaint is it just not real big. It doesn't take very long to walk. A few domes built-in to tanks to peak into tanks my daughter liked that otherwise there is a play area at the exit. I rate this average as us not bad, just not... More

This aquarium isn't very large but it's very nice and the space is used very efficiently so it feels a lot larger than it is. It is a great set up for toddlers. There are plenty of viewing areas designed for small kids. Our daughter loves it.

Traveled with my 9yr and 6 yr. We enjoyed the aquarium. They enjoy and love to learn about sea life and this aquarium was nice and small with lots of hands on education. It does cost a bit more to see the behind the scene but we enjoyed it. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and sweet. Would go again!

Don't make the same mistake we made: buy your tickets in advance at the mall kiosk or online so you can skip the longer line! We arrived shortly after they opened on a Sunday morning (Labor Day weekend). Lines were super long, and it didn't help that several customers had many questions for the cashiers, further slowing down the admission... More

We bought our tickets online to save some extra money. We also purchased the "behind the scene tour". It was completely worth it! This aquarium is fairly small, but that can be a great thing when you have smaller children. All in all I think it was worth the money and really enjoyed how well taken care of and clean... More

This has made the Dallas World Aquarium look good, despite being lame as well. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

It was a very nice location for the kids, I do prefer downtown Dallas Aquarium for the price that was paid at this location. My kids that are younger even agreed.

Who puts an Aquarium in the mall? Although the exhibits available were nice, and the walkthrough tunnel was cool, the whole experience lasted an hour. For 2 adults and 1 child we paid nearly $60. That isn't a very good value for an hour's worth of entertainment.

It's totally waste of money it is not worth 23 dollars. It is a joke. Well it not a waste of time because its only will only take 10 minutes to finish it. It is really overpriced
