Downtown Aquarium Tours

Located in downtown Houston, the Downtown Aquarium is home to more than 200 aquatic animal species from around the world, housed in 500,000-gallon underwater complex. The attraction caters to children and families and, while not the largest aquarium, does have some interesting exhibits that will keep you interested. Experience Shipwreck, where you can walk inside a replica of a sunken seventeenth century Spanish galleon to view living coral reefs, octopus, moray eel, Clownfish and more. There’s also the Shark Voyage Tunnel, a ride aboard a C.P. Huntington Train that takes visitors through an aquarium tunnel filled with a variety of shark species which will swim right over your head.

The Downtown Aquarium allows you to explore more than just underwater marine life as it’s home to a variety of eco-systems. For example, visitors can view white tigers at Maharaja's Temple, a 20+ foot Tiger Reticulated Python at Sunken Temple and gators and snapping turtles at Louisiana Swamp. Carnival games and rides can also be enjoyed at the attraction. After you’re done taking in the wildlife, make sure to grab a bite at their onsite restaurant to dine while enjoying a view of the colorful fish from your table.

Hours for the Downtown Aquarium are Monday through Thursday from 10am to 9pm, Friday and Saturday 10am to 11pm and Sunday from 10am to 9pm. Admission tickets for the exhibits are $9.25 for adults, $8.25 for seniors 65 and older, $6.25 for children 2 to 12 and free for children under two. Ride prices vary.
