The Children’s Aquarium at Fair Park

Come see the “greatest hits” of the sea at the new Children’s Aquarium at Fair Park. Kids will love viewing sharks, jellyfish, eels, rays, piranhas, turtles, clown fish, and other species from popular movies and books. The child-friendly design offers interactive exhibits for hands-on exploration, with a Coastal touch pool filled with slipper lobsters, horseshoe crabs, sea urchins, and other creatures.

Venture to the outdoor pavilion to visit Stingray Bay, where guests can feed and interact with cownose rays in a touch pool. Nearby, they can watch zebra, bonnethead, and other sharks swimming in a larger pool.
