Texas State Aquarium

Family at aquarium

The official aquarium of the State of Texas

Every visit to the Texas State Aquarium is filled with fun and discovery! You can experience daily dive shows, get up close with bottlenose dolphins or feed the stingrays. Guests can cool off at the H-E-B Splash Park after watching sea turtles gracefully glide in the waters and North American river otters play the day away.

The Texas State Aquarium is nearing completion of a $50 million expansion to be named "Caribbean Journey." Aquarium guests will be introduced to the sights, sounds and vibrant wildlife of the Western Caribbean and Coastal Bend areas. The new exhibits are scheduled to open in spring 2017.
