Explore: Dallas Aquarium

Come join us for fishes, sloths and good times on

Sunday, April 06, 2014 at the Dallas Aquarium


It's been an unspoken shame of mine that after many years in Dallas I have yet to visit the Aquarium, so I thought it was about time to change this

The adventures at the Aquarium begins at the top of the rainforest exhibit where exotic birds such as the Cocks-of-the-rocks and various species of toucans can be seen. Lounging around are two toed and three toed sloths. Endangered animals such as crocodiles, giant river otters, manatees and various species of monkeys are part of the many conservation projects. The aquarium portion displays many interesting marine life such as jelly fish, sea dragons and many more! After we are through the Aquarium we can head out for a late lunch.

Entrance fee is $20.95. After we are through the Aquarium we can head out for a late lunch.

    I'm going, but I'm going to be very late. If anyone wishes to meetup later here around 12/1, let me know. I'm going to the Deep Ellum Arts Festival/farmer's market afterwards.

    Hey all, I moved the event one hour earlier (when the aquarium opens) due to the March Madness Music Festival happening that day. This should allow us to be in and out of downtown before parking lots get full and traffic becomes a nuisance. Sorry for any inconvenience!

      True. Also the DART west end station is within walking distance for those who want to avoid the parking madness. I generally park at mockingbird station and take the train

    Have to cancel as it's too far for me to get up that early in the morning due to the updated time. Have fun tho!

    I work at the aquarium. Be sure to check the field guide when you arrive for feeding/talk times. Then arrive about 5-10 min early. Feedings can happen quickly, and you don't want to miss them. Also, our 1801 restaurant has amazing lunches. Have fun!

    Out of town. I would recommend checking the feeding times before you go if you want to see the sharks being fed.

      Yeah usually they're just circling around but don't get to eat. Still fun to watch if you're not the prey though ;)

      Yeah and watching the sharks is fun too!

    Manatees!! (Not to split hairs, but this is the Dallas World Zoo & Aquarium [since the Dallas Aquarium also exists]). ;-)
