A short walk from he USS Lexington will have you diving into discovery at the Texas State Aquarium.
From tiny seahorses to big sharks, a walk through the mesmerizing waters of the aquarium puts you in a place more colorful than the Land of Oz and more mysterious than Atlantis.

Discover the wonderful world of sea otters and sea turtles, and get up close and personal with the dolphins in the Aquarium 's newest attraction, Dolphin Bay.

The Aquarium's islands of Steel, a replica of an offshore oil and gas platform found in the Gulf, is a huge 132,000 gallon (ca. 500,000 liters) exhibit that gives the visitor the illusion of being submerged 50-70 feet (15-21 m) under water.

There’s guaranteed surprise around every corner. And the Aquarium's newest exhibit is filled with jaw-dropping surprises.
OddySea will transport you to an alien world, a prehistoric locale, or into a sculpture itself. The Texas State Aquarium has assembled a cast of odd characters, from a frogfish and squat lobster to a giant pacific octopus and wolf eel. There’s even a blue lobster!
These creatures are sure to make you think " Peculiar. Weird. Odd!"
Not only do some of these animals look bizarre, some show curious behaviors traits. And all will be placed in 'odd' settings! This exhibit will compel you to question what you think you know and what you believe is real. Come and ignite your imagination! Set all your preconceived notions aside and submerge yourself into a whole new underwater world!
