This little children’s aquarium has been at Fair Park since 1936 and had an $8 million remodel in 2010 and I had never heard of it until April of this year. At the beginning of May we had a free morning to give it a shot and so the girls and I loaded up and headed for Dallas. It’s really a great little aquarium with all kinds of interesting creatures and a lot from Texas waters. They also have a touch tank near the front that the girls really liked, but the absolute highlight for them was feeding and touching the sting rays! We must have spent over an hour just doing that and the girls would have happily stayed longer. On our way out I decided to go ahead and apply our admission to season passes because they were already asking me if we could come back soon.
No one else was there so the girls got an impromptu lesson on a sea turtle rescue.
The staff was really wonderful and kind to the girls. They gave us the number to call before coming so we could check to see how many field trips they had scheduled because they wanted to save us a trip if it was too crowded. So great!
