Dallas World Aquarium

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by globalroamer on April 10, 2005

This is a privately owned aquarium and zoo. If you've been before, they've recently (in 2004, I believe) completed a major expansion to the rain forest, so it's worth a return visit. Kids love this stuff.

They also have facilities for meetings (we've rented rooms for staff meetings, and I've been to a wedding reception there).

The aquarium has a tunnel that allows you to walk underneath the sharks. There is also a manatee pool. If you're there at 12:30 p.m. they will feed the manatees and the divers get into the pool to play with them.

In the rainforest there is a free-flight aviary with tropical birds, and the path goes high up in the tree canopy so you can see them close-up. Also there is a monkey island.
