About Austin Aquarium:
Until now, Austin was the largest metro area in the country without an aquarium. The Austin Aquarium welcomes everyone to enjoy the unique interactive experiences found within, and is especially excited to introduce children and families to the world beneath the ocean’s surface. Guests are encouraged to hand feed sharks, rays, birds, and fish, or to get up close and personal with many of the reptiles and other animals on exhibit. Above all, Austin Aquarium promotes education through an interactive experience in a comfortable environment. Kids and adults alike are sure to be enchanted by our cute and playful otters, amazed at the soft skin of sharks and rays, and delighted at the grace of the sea turtles surfacing for air.
Austin Aquarium provides children and families access to the excitement and learning opportunities of the ocean without the long trip to the coast. Guests can watch jellyfish float and glow, admire the bright and colorful corals, and hear the bark of our fur seals brought from Uruguay, all within easy reach of home. Austin Aquarium offers multiple educational programs and events for kids, as well as behind-the-scenes tours for those curious about what it takes to keep an aquarium in good working order. Popular programs developed by the owners from their other locations, such as birthday parties and Marine Biologist for a Day programs, will also be featured here at Austin Aquarium.
