This is a great place to visit. We loved seeing the penguins and the river otters. The large fish are very impressive and it has a really nice atomisphere nestled in downtown Dallas.

Always clean and easy to find parking. Places to eat within walking distance. A little pricey. But worth it. Must see the penguins.
