  • Bring baby backpacks or slings

    Summer is our busiest season, which also means there are many guests visiting the Aquarium. Baby backpacks or baby slings, instead of strollers, will help you get through crowded areas with ease.

  • Wear comfortable shoes

    As the biggest Aquarium in Texas, there sure is a lot of ground to cover! To make you as comfortable as possible, wear athletic or tennis shoes to walk around the Aquarium.

    To avoid large groups and crowds during the summer months, try visiting during the week. The busiest days are the weekends and the busiest times are 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
