This is a very good place to go for some fun and education. Varied animals to see and well done by the staff. They answer all your questions and provide information about the animals. Many interactions with different animals, fish, birds and mammals. Highly recommend a visit.

"Expensive for what it is and offers."

It was okay, the kids liked it, not as much as the Zoo and definitely overpriced. The only deal offered was the annual pass but we are not locals and only visit San Antonio once a year. The token system makes no sense, example a token costs $3, a canned soda costs $2 or 1 token.....Animal food cost 1 token from the machine but the plastic bubble it cames in only has like 5 pellets of food. The gift shop we found lacking, wish there were more items available that said SA Aquarium that could pass as souvenirs. The videos online and on Facebook make it seem better than it is and makes you believe that it's worth the $$ they charge.

This small aquarium is average at best. Not very clean and not the most interesting that I've been to. The layout is not conducive to large crowds so seeing the fish/animals is hard at times.

My family had the best time there! We spent at least 2 hours there and could have stayed longer. Buying the extra coins was a little pricey but totally worth it in the end! My son had a blast overcoming his fears and feeding the stingrays! I recommend the aquarium to people of all ages!

It was a really neat place but I think for the age group of the kids the lady talking was a bit slow and was losing the little ones. Also the concession stand needed more help and she could have been more friendly.
