Anyone who enjoys learning about our natural environment will love a trip to the Dallas World Aquarium.
The aquarium started in 1992 and opened in a building that was originally a warehouse. The aquarium promotes awareness of the natural world through its conservation research and education programs. The facility is not only an aquarium; while there you will experience a rain forest with toucans and sloths, a penguin habitat, and various tropical displays that include reptiles and amphibians.
There are ten main tanks that feature marine life from various parts of the world, including British Columbia, Fiji, Sri Lanka, and Japan. The more traditional aquarium displays feature such fish as sharks and rays.Places nearby:
