About these ratings

Perhaps "aquarium" isn't the right word to describe this attraction. Of course there are fish, stingrays, eels and octopuses, but the Dallas World Aquarium also houses penguins, sharks and flamingos. A living rainforest shelters manatees, crocodiles, monkeys and toucans, while the Mayan exhibit is home to a jaguar and an ocelot, among other fascinating wildlife. As one TripAdvisor user puts it: "The Dallas World Aquarium is an amazing facility that takes you on a journey through the rainforest; you feel like you are actually in Central America for a few wonderful of hours."

Housed in a converted warehouse just a few blocks away from the DART's West End Station, the Dallas World Aquarium is open every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (hours of operation sometimes fluctuate depend on the season, so check ahead with the aquarium's website). Admission costs vary between $13 and $21, dependent on age; children age 2 and under can enter for free.
