Experience Thousands of Species and Interactive Exhibits …for Kids and Families Austin Aquarium has become embedded in the community of the city for over four years now, and we’ve loved every second we’ve been able to provide once in a lifetime experiences with thousands of Species and interactive exhibits for kids and families.

Among the exhibits featured throughout the aquarium are a wide variety of amphibians, an interactive lorikeet and parakeet aviary, and a variety of cold water and tropical fish. Also, Austin Aquarium features sharks, a stingray touch tank, a rainforest with hundreds of reptiles and our newest additions to the family, Ring Tail Lemurs and Coatimundis!

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, the Austin Aquarium promotes education through an interactive experience in a comfortable environment. Kids and adults alike are sure to be amazed at the soft skin of sharks and rays among other experiences.

The 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 gently float and glow and admire the bright and colorful corals without leaving Austin’s city limits. The Aquarium offers multiple educational programs and events for kids, as well as behind the scenes tours for those curious about just what it takes to keep an aquarium in good working order.

We also provide additional experiences like birthday parties, octopus encounters, and our “Sleep with the Sharks” program.

We hope to inspire a young generation of ocean explorers and conservationists through education and a shared experience with a live animal, to create an appreciation for the oceans. With over 8,000 living animals representing habitats from the Oregon shores to remote Indonesian Islands, the experience will instill respect and awe for our rich aquatic resources. 

The owners place a premium on the family experience, with a special interest in foster children.  Having hosted 31 of their own, and adopting 3, they understand the struggles foster families face, and therefore offer free admission to foster children. Also included in free admission are all families, children, and employees of Austin Children’s Shelter and Children at Heart Ministries, who together help thousands of families in difficult circumstances.
