Very good and very busy.

The kids love it! Especially and predictably the dolphins. Very informative about local beasts. It is not conveniently located: in a shopping mall on the edge of town.

So overall a very good place. I'd never seen a tiger shark before or a manatee and both were here. Lots of small exhibits and a few large ones. The penguin display was pretty boring. We paid 120 Pesos for two kids to touch a dolphin. In the states that would cost you $50 probably. The map of Texas and... More

The Aquarium used to be better. The collection of animals is still nice however the presentation is dated. The day we were there it was extremely humid and hot inside. The walls were in need of paint and some of the exhibits were no longer functioning.The dolphin shows needs seating.

This was a stop on a cruise I was on and this was one of the stops. The tour was amazing. There was a statue of some children who threw themselves over a cliff with the flag. It was all about the country being taken over during that time years ago. It was sad to listen to this during the... More

Don't miss the Aquarium in Veracruz, but be sure to go on a day when it isn't too crowded. You might want to call ahead or inquire. I went on a weekday early, and was able to get in before the rush of children and parents came through. I'm sure it's busy all the time, but plan if you can.... More

Very good aquarium located beachside. Excellent self directed walk through the many tanks including a dolphin show. You can get a combination ticket to the wax museum and Ripley's. Wax museum was good also.
