We really enjoy this aquarium. This was our second time to be there and the staff is always very friendly and informative. The aquarium itself is pretty small but I love the hands on experience that my kids get. We will be back!

This place is quite small. The highlight is the petting area. I prefer the SeaLife Aquarium in Grapevine.

Better for older children. Not preschoolers. To dark and a bit loud. Difficult to understand what to do in some Exhibits.

There is general parking areas not to far of a walk to the Children's Aquarium. You pull into the gate and drive down a bit and you will see parking spots.
