The Dallas World Aquarium reviews
This is an incredible aquarium. There is so much to see, you will need to spend the entire day. Stop in one of the restaurants for lunch. The food is excellent. This is a place not to be missed. more »
It didn’t really seem like an “aquarium”! It was decorated nicely, very well maintained and clean.. Didn’t seem to have as many fish tanks as there were birds, spiders, frogs, snakes and other small.... more »
I absolutely love this place! There are so many different animals and the employees here are great too. Parking can be a bit of a challenge but once you get in the experience is unforgettable. The exhibits seem to be well maintained. I definitely recommend if you are looking for something to do during free time.
Best Aquarium I’ve ever been to! Animals have big exhibits and interactive cage mates! Beautiful decor too! I would like to see a bigger tank for the octopus though. For such an intelligent animal it seems quite small.
