Owner description: The adventure at The Dallas World Aquarium begins at the top of the rainforest exhibit, where exotic birds, such as Cocks-of-the-rock and many species of toucans, can be seen. Lounging around are Two-toed and Three-toed sloths. Endangered animals, such as Orinoco crocodiles, Giant river otters, Antillean manatees and several species of monkeys are part of the many conservation projects. The aquarium portion displays interesting marine life, including Japanese crabs, jellyfish, Leafy, Weedy and Ribbon seadragons. Black-footed and Blue penguins can be seen swimming as guests enjoy the outdoor South Africa exhibit. Sharks, rays and sawfish are only a few of the fish living in the Mundo Maya cenote. Safe from Neotropical eagles, are euphonias, tanagers and hummingbirds. Reptiles and amphibians, both of significance to the Maya culture, can be seen throughout the exhibit.

Visited here for a couple hours on a Saturday . They have penguins and a lot of other animals. Kids enjoyed it. Tickets are reasonable price and it's in the air conditioned. There were a lot of paid parking lots in the area.

Very good aquarium. It's located in the middle of downtown. I was surprised to see birds and snakes. Friendly staff. Yes the admission is a bit pricey for four.

We only visited to fill a couple of hours, but don't be put off by the exterior, once inside this is one of the best exhibitions of birds, mammals and marine life that I've seen in an indoor setting. Well worth a visit.

Very good value. Family friendly. Had a bit of an odor, but that's to be expected with animals and humidity. Very large for being in the middle of the city.
