Recently relocated, the aquarium is an interesting collection of information and displays about Texas wetland wildlife and the estuarine ecosystems of the Texas Coast.

A small but fun place for kids to wander through. Free admission and very helpful and friendly staff. Several things for kids to do so make this a quick stop when in Rockport.

Small free quaint aquarium. My son loved it. Was amazed at the fact it was free. Moray eel scared the life out of me.

Quaint little sea life education center and aquarium. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Free admission with voluntary donation box, hands on stuff for children to do. The education center next door shows an informative movie about the movements of the ocean floor. It is worth seeing.

Small but interesting. The weekend we were there, a group of elementary school children were at the aquarium explaining the different fish to the visitors. They were very knowledgeable.

Compared other cities this is relatively small, however it is a great open air area and its free, so easy to take advantage.

Everything about this place is amazing! The aquatic life, the activities for the kids to do, the learning center, but most above all the people who run it are what made this experience the absolute best. They were so helpful and informative. They interacted with the kids helping them learn how to draw crabs, letting them touch a jaw bone... More
