We'll Sea You Real Soon
Re-Opening September 24, 2021




Shello, fins! We have some exciting news for all of our fish fans. The Children's Aquarium at Fair Park will reopen on the first day of the State Fair of Texas, September 24.

All of our fish and sea creatures have really missed you. We can't wait to welcome you back to Dallas' favorite family attraction very soon.

Check back for all the details and be sure to follow our reopening adventures on our social media channels. Stop by our Facebook page to say Howdy to Little Tex, our Sea Star spokesfish, and tell us what you can't wait to do first!

We've got plenty of new interactive exhibits under construction and animals are arriving at their new home every day. Get ready to have your hands pampered by our hungry Doctor Fish, help our Archer Fish spit water at their food and watch our Swell Sharks glow in the dark. Your next visit to the Children's Aquarium will be a hands on and hands wet adventure.
