As you walk towards the Dallas World Aquarium, you are transported into a tropical jungle. After paying for admission and walking up to the 3rd floor, I felt I was in the tropics. You are treated to a beautiful waterfall with birds of all kinds....More

We got there at 1pm and the line was completely full. It filled up that whole tunnel thing. It moved fast though! We paid $75 and slowly bounced around the aquarium. It was so packed. You couldnt look at/enjoy anything. I thought there would be...More

This is more than an aquarium, It was an indoor conservatory with rain forest plants, animals birds and fish. The design is clever in that you start out upstairs in the canopy of the rain forest, and see the birds, then the path winds down...More

Taking our 16 month old granddaughter here was a real treat. The facility was well run with excellent up-close viewing of birds plants, insects, animals, and undersea life. It was blissfully very cool inside in the Summer heat. We are so happy we went, and...More

It was totally unexpected to see land animals and birds along with aquatic animals and fishes. The aquarium is very well planned with multiple levels. It also has a nice gift shop and a small eatery right inside the aquarium. Parking is available right across...More

We went here for a visit in May while visiting Dallas. I found this place have way too many birds for an "aquarium". I think they could've done better with adding more fishes and move the birds to the Dallas Zoo. Dallas Zoo is much...More
