Pay Just $5 to Get in to Children’s Aquarium at Fair Park During the State Fair of Texas!


The Children’s Aquarium at Fair Park provides kids with the opportunity to see the “greatest hits” of the sea — sharks, jellyfish, eels, clown fish, and other species. The child-friendly design offers interactive exhibits for hands-on exploration, with a Coastal touch pool filled with horseshoe crabs, slipper lobsters, and starfish.
