I took my 14 and 10 year old daughters to the San Antonio Aquarium and we had a blast! The staff was very helpful and informative. My daughters fed a porcupine, stingrays, iguanas and a gang of birds! I highly recommend it for the family...More

We spent an enjoyable afternoon viewing the eclectic collection of animals. Kids loved feeding the birds, especially the parakeets and Toucan. We used a Groupon, so price was right for the experience.

Having been to zoo-like experiences and aquariums around the world (except for China), this is the saddest one I have ever seen in a developed country. Lemurs are housed in a cage with fluorescent strip lighting over a painted concrete floor strewn with some bark...More

Do not visit this aquarium, if it can even be called that due to the lack of aquatic animals they have. The animals they do have don't seem to be taken care of properly, the tanks were not clean, the building is even worse off...More

Very VERY low budget. I felt so bad for the animals and felt awful for even giving them out money. The admission is way more money than it’s worth. We were here for the summer on vacation. Our daughter did the lemur experience, which I...More

So its a lot more than an aquarium. Yes they have a lot of fish and you can feed the manta rays. But they also have lemurs, sloths, kangaroos, a friendly tortoise, snakes, iguanas and much more. The highlight for us was feeding the colorful...More

Great place for the fee, the kids have nothing but fun, it's very hands-on, you can feed almost anything, they have a wide variety of animals, should be named petting zoo with sharks. It's a great place to spend a day. Go early and have...More

If you're going to name a place after the city it's in; it should be on-point. The fact that both the dinosaur statues out front have their tails broken off and no one has fixed them in months gives you some idea how this place...More

Cats can carry a disease that can be deadly to the kangaroos and lemurs. If you have a cat you can’t go in with the kangaroos, but with the lemurs they can spray your shoes to kill whatever the germ is.
