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.

Texas State Aquarium reviews
I thought the aquarium was excellent! Great to see animals from Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea! Dolphins were fun to watch. more »
Some say it's pricey for the size but not really if you consider your ticket as a donation to the massive upkeep needed to run it and the rescue and rehab work they do. If you care about the world... more »
Best thing to do in Corpus that isn't the beach! Exhibits are amazing and facility is super clean! All the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. It can get busy on the weekends, but it's worth the crowds. Side tip: skip the arena for the dolphin show and go to the underwater viewing area. Much closer and more entertaining view of these amazing creatures! Splash pad was great as well! Only downside is no outside food allowed so plan accordingly.
What a great aquarium! We loved the interactive areas from being able to touch the sand sharks, stingrays, hermit crabs, and jelly fish! The layout was beautiful from the inside to the outside. We especially loved the view of the bay. We loved the dolphin show but sadly not enough seating. Over all a great experience and the kids loved it!
