The Austin Aquarium was a delight. It is not the biggest aquarium that I have been to, but it was a good experience. There are a lot I'd opportunities to touch and feed the fish and animals. It was the perfect size for younger visitors.

This was a great experience for my girls! There weren't many attractions to see in the aquarium but we enjoyed being able to see various creatures and learning more about them. The birds that were outside of their cages were a little intimidating because they would make loud sounds as you walked by and didn't seem to be harnessed or anything, but overall, it was a really good experience for the price.

The Austin Aquarium was more for my visiting sister than me. We both enjoyed it, was on the small side. What they had was impressive and peaceful. Employees were very friendly and helpful, informing us what and how to feed. The birds were friendly and would let you hold them.She really enjoyed that. I'm glad we went, kids would love it, and just an greAt experience

The aquarium is a great place to enjoy the life aquatic with your children. The tactile exhibits make this an ideal place for daring, energetic kids like my son. There are also pretty fun aviary exhibits. I would hope in the future there will be more text about the animals there. Most of the exhibits are just there on display without much to say about the fish and birds. The staff is very kind too

I was disappointed that many of the cages/aquariums were not marked with what was in them. Some were marked but that is not what was in it. Mostly, it was not what I was expecting.

I was expecting more. It seemed like they cared more about having over priced souvenirs than attractions. My daughter got bored super quick.

Great experience. this place is small, but sufficient for a great morning or afternoon of fun. The admission price is reasonable & the experience was fantastic. They also have a nice indoor playroom for the children, pleasant surprose. This was worth the time, money & great experience.
