Impressive aquarium in Corpus Christi less than 1 hour from the house. Perfect for a day trip after you've had your fill of surf & sand.

Texas State Aquarium is a great day of fun in nearby Corpus Christi. The aquarium is fun for all ages and is a great reprieve from the sun or a rainy day at the coast. This is a great experience for kids and adults alike.

OK...the Aquarium is the perfect place to take the family on a rainy day, when hangin' out on the beach will have to wait.

I love a good aquarium and this one was great! The reason I really enjoyed this one is because a lot of the animals were roaming around in enclosures instead of glass cases. There were a ton of animals that you could actually interact with which was really cool!

Great place for kids and families. They added many new features in 2017. We go several times a year. Look on Groupon for some good deals, also watch for special programs. We attend a lot of these.

Let yourself be carried away into the deep blue water during an enchanting visit to the Texas State Aquarium. Located on North Beach, this stunning complex is home to fascinating sea creatures of all kinds. A day at the aquarium is a surefire way to keep your youngest explorers engaged and excited. Plunge into an ocean adventure you won’t soon forget.

I love TSA! It's always so fun to see the exhibits and see all kinds of animal life there. They have awesome interaction at the dolphin and bird life shows! You're able to learn a bunch from TSA employees. It's great.

Super fun for kids! (The only reason I give it a 4 instead of a 5 is 1.It is really expensive, in my opinion and 2. Pales in comparison to the larger aquariums in California) In the last 2 years the aquarium has grown exponentially and added all kinds of fun shows and interactive activities for the kiddos. I highly recommend taking your kids here. They have a mini water park so pack the bathing suits and sunscreen! Students, senior and military get discounts with id.

The Texas State Aquarium is a great way to spend a family day. If it is rainy out or you have just had enough of the sun; make Texas State Aquarium a destination for the day or 1/2 day. For young children, there is a "splash pad" at the entrance so bring swimsuits and towels for that. The exhibits are interesting for kids of all ages and you will probably even get to pet a stingray....
