Texas State Aquarium, home to more than 330 animal species, hosts animal shows and educational programs as part of its mission as an animal rehabilitation facility. Many animals arrive here ill or hurt, receive treatment, and then are sent back into the wild. Peek in on many kinds of water critters, from jellyfish, eels, and crabs to stingrays--some of which you can pet--sharks, and dolphins. You'll also meet turtles, birds, frogs, and other animals. Ask about the dolphin presentations, too. Put Texas State Aquarium on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Corpus Christi trip website.

  • We got there around noon and the line seemed long but, it was moving pretty quick. It was great. Honestly we went at the end of March the weather was beautiful, the people were nice, restrooms are clean, didn't buy any food. All the aquariums were clean, there were plenty of fish to see. The line at the little Starbucks was kinda long but the drinks were good just like pretty much any Starbucks. We had a blast. My family loved it. If you haven't been, I highly recommend it.
  • This is an awesome aquarium! It's arranged and set up very well. They have so many up close viewing areas and good information as you go. The otter and dolphin exhibits are really cool. Plan on spending most the day here. It's family friendly and the parking was super easy and convenient. Food is kind of pricey as you would expect. They also have a starbucks in the lobby. This was definitely worth the price of admission and we loves every second!
