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
Enjoyed our trip to this aquarium. It was refreshing to hear most of the animals were saved animals who were injured and taken care of at this aquarium. Liked the porpoises in the show. more »

Despite it being the off season for tourism, the aquarium still had a good variety of events for the public. Loved the dolphin and wildlife show. Also liked the community outreach rescue program. Beautiful aquariums, and we really like the Caribbean fish displays. However, there were a larger number of displays being worked on and closed, including the splash zone. It was beautiful weather, and being from the north, the weather (in the 70s) was great for getting wet. Please consider this in the future, or a discount due to the number of closed displays. Summertime is really the season to be there.
Great place to bring your family. There is a military discount as well. I was very impressed with the variety of animals/aquariums! There are even aquarium structures you can walk through and the fish swim above you. The staff were very friendly, the premises were well kept and clean, and the shows were very entertaining. I would highly recommend for anyone visiting the area.
