Sprawling spot for sea life, including touch pools, shark tank & displays of aquatic ecosystems.- Google
"The food is ok, good $14 crab cake, decent $8 clam chowder."
"The train goes through a shark tank which is pretty neat."

I am not commenting on the food nor the aquatic attractions. I am commenting on the white tigers. Their life is spent behind bars, in small concrete enclosures with no access to the outside world. No sunshine and no fresh air. They've never felt the earth beneath their feet. It's obvious that the welfare of these animals is of no concern to the owners but they are used as a means to lure people to the aquarium for monetary reasons only. White tigers are bred specifically for their color and many are born with birth defects. Those tigers are either destroyed or sent to canned hunting venues to be hunted. The tigers are display at the Aquarium have nothing to do with conservation so don't be fooled by those claims. Don't spend your money on a place that has such little regard for the welfare of animals. It's all about the money.

Train ride was the only thing worth doing! Aquarium has a huge Ferris Wheel in which you will stand in line for hours they only use four carts at a time and if there is a birthday party tbey go on ride before anyone else that is waiting in line. Attraction was so dissappointing will never return or recommend.

It's soo tiny! My husband and I just moved here from Florida and this was a bit of a disappointment from previous aquariums we've been to. There wasn't even any sharks! What kind of aquarium doesn't have sharks? If you have little kids I guess it's good for them to look at the different fish but it's just so small, we were in and out within an hour. Also, why are there white tigers at an aquarium? Honestly that was my favorite part and kind of the saving grace for this visit but I'm just curious as to why they're there.

We recently attended a birthday party at the Downtown Aquarium and I was very disturbed by the white tiger exhibit. Being that it was a birthday event we didn't have to purchase anything, other than parking, this time. We have been in the past, years ago, and it was overpriced and ridiculous how they charged you for every little thing, so we never returned. This time we actually went through the "aquarium" for what little it is, and were horrified to see the white tiger exhibit. First, what do tigers have to do w/ an aquarium? I asked our tour guide, and she said that they were just there because the owner had them and needed a place to put them. I then asked her if they were rescues and to please elaborate as to where they came from. She said they were all born in captivity and they actually have 4 of them. We saw only one in the enclosure so I asked about the remaining tigers. She said they are not all allowed out at the same time so they are kept in the back, but wouldn't elaborate as to how they are "kept". The enclosure size is pathetically small for animals of this size and the likelihood that they are probably in even smaller enclosures in "the back" makes it even more disturbing. I find the fact that they are even there an insult to the species. I took the time to research white tigers in captivity further, and let's just say what I found infuriated me enough to encourage me to actually take the time to write a review. To the owner(s) of the aquarium, I sincerely request that you please find a better place for these magnificent creatures, such as a sanctuary, for them to live out their days.

Had my daughter's birthday party there. It was a little touch and go at first as the event person was hard to reach, and then I got conflicting information about availability. However I spoke with a manager and he was able to coordinate arrangements (not the full party package) but at the end it was a great time. The food and service were superb.

From Dallas visiting the Houston area. This Aquarium Was $10.99 per person when we went and included touching sting rays. Not sure if it was cause we went on a Monday morning but price wasn't so bad. We paid for valet which was $9 instead of $7 self park. We only stayed at the aquarium for a little while cause it wasn't so big. I thought we would see sharks since that's my favorite part of aquariums but there weren't any. The sting reef was cool and u can pay extra to feed them. We didn't ride anything so can't really comment on those. It's great for kids but it's just so small for adults. It was cool but the Dallas World Aquarium is much bigger and nicer.

Train ride waiting is a joke. They intentionally let people sit only on every other row to discourage you to take the ride a second time. Not considerate for the children in line at all! WON'T COME AGAIN!!

I took my wife and daughter here for my wife's birthday, and we LOVED it! It was extremely fun to watch my daughter's face and excitement for all the "fishies" as we ate dinner. Customer service was amazing the entire time and I couldn't be more pleased with my decision. Thank you!
