This is not a large, time consuming place. It is small, but it's also free (they will accept donations). It is well worth the visit. Nice assortment of fish, etc. Nice educational info. Very friendly staff.

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.

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