Texas State Aquarium Welcomes Guests for Memorial Day Weekend with Extended Hours, Added Presentations, and a New 4D Film

May 25, 2023

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – This Memorial Day Weekend, the Texas State Aquarium will extend its hours for the summer, launch a new 4D film, and add more animal presentations throughout the day! These opportunities will give guests a variety of ways to celebrate the holiday, beat the summer heat, and discover the wonders of the ocean.

Starting Saturday, May 27th, the Aquarium will open daily and extend its summer hours to 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. During their visit, guests can also stop by the new Port Corpus Christi Center for Wildlife Rescue to get an up-close look at the areas where our Wildlife Rescue Program rehabilitates and cares for Texas wildlife. The Center is open daily from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  

A new 4D movie will also make an appearance this Memorial Day Weekend. Starting this weekend, guests will boogie with Mumble in the all-new Happy Feet 4D Experience. Featured in digital 3D and brought to life with 4D multi-sensory effects, this is an immersive experience for the whole family to enjoy. This special experience will be playing throughout the season in the Whataburger 4D Theater and is included with Aquarium admission.   

The new 15,000-square-foot H-E-B Splash Park is currently under construction and the Aquarium hopes to open this new addition to the public in late June. 

More Fun. More Animals Rescued at your Texas State Aquarium.
