We used the CityPASS to visit the Downtown Aquarium, The Children’s Museum of Houston and The Houston Museum of Natural Science.
This is a fun family friendly exhibit. We loved the looked at the fish in the aquariums. I loved the nautical theme of the exhibits.
The Downtown Aquarium features:
- Lousiana Swamp
- Sunken Temple
- Gulf of Mexico
- White Tigers
- Stingray Reef
We LOVED the Stingray Reef! You get to interact with the stingrays by petting them. You can also pay a small fee to feed the stingrays. It was a blast.
