We visited with family and grandkids. Great displays, free admission, and free parking. The huge eel will keep you entertained. Helpful staff. And then walk outside along the bay side. We made a donation to help feed the fish. Just a fun experience.

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.

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

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.
