What Members Are Saying About Us

What members are saying about us:

Jessica (along with 5 other family members)….

“I want to start off by saying that my family and I have been members of the aquarium since last December. We visit quite frequently, and love the Austin Aquarium so much. I am always quick to give out only the highest praises when talking to anyone about the Aquarium.

Our family came to visit on Saturday morning (9/6) and there were some birds out on perches. There was one in particular, that I hadn’t seen before, and frankly I fell head over heels in love with her. This bird was Zoe. I was wondering if you could tell me if there are specific times and days when she is out so that I can interact with her when we come to visit. Or if it is possible to talk to someone when we are there to have her brought out so that we can see her.

I just absolutely love her, and would love to be able to see her more.”

Later she wrote…..

“Thank you so much! We were in on Tuesday and she was out. She is just so lovely. I also wanted to say that I really enjoyed the fish you added to the large tank with the yellow puffer. I can’t wait for my big kids to see it this weekend. We are absolutely planning on renewing our membership for another year. This has by far been one of the best purchases I have ever made.”
