Corpus Christi's most popular visitor attraction has welcomed over 10 million visitors since its grand opening in July 1990. Conveniently located on North Beach, the Texas State Aquarium is just minutes from Corpus Christi's downtown district, convention center complex, and museums.The Texas State Aquarium Association is a not-for-profit, educational institution that does not receive any city, state, or federal funding for its operations. Every visit to the Texas State Aquarium is a new and exciting discovery of animals that remind us all of our responsibility to those whose world we share.The Aquarium's Second Chances Wildlife Rehabilitation Program is federally permitted and operates under rigorous standards established by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). Each year, thousands of protected, endangered or threatened species along the Texas coast become ill or injured. Most are brought to our facility with problems caused directly or indirectly by humans. The goal of the Texas State Aquarium's Second Chances Program is to rehabilitate, and whenever possible, return the animals to their natural environment. The Aquarium is an accredited member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and is a member of the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums. The Aquarium's mission is connecting people with nature and inspiring the conservation of the Gulf of Mexico.

“Wedding”

The staff was friendly and helpful. We were there for a wedding and it couldn't have been more beautiful. Everyone went out of their way to make the bride's day wonderful. Enjoyed the tanks.

“fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

I like all the sharks. I like piranahs they are sparkly and have a cute mouth. Saw a freaky fish that looked like it had legs.

“Great for 3-7 yr olds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

We've been members aof the aquarium for a few years and have had an overall positive experience there. Take a swimsuit, towels, and eat BEFORE you go unless you want to eat wayyyyy substandard food. Great employees, exhibits and shows. Two hours is about all the time you need.
