Boasting a six-acre dining and entertainment complex, the Downtown Aquarium features geographic exhibits and over 300 marine species from around the world. You can also ride a Ferris wheel and so much more. Here is some of what you can enjoy at this spectacular aquarium near our Houston apartments.
Inside Shipwreck, you'll learn about several species that call the ocean home. One of the highlights includes the moray eels. A type of fish, these creatures mainly live in saltwater habitats. They hide in deep ocean crevices and rarely venture into the shores. Moray eels are carnivores. During mealtime, they feast on shrimp, crabs, and small fish. While they have poor vision, their keen sense of smell helps them find prey in the ocean waters.

Also offering an underwater adventure, the on-site restaurant features a floor-to-ceiling 150,000 aquarium. It's filled with more than 100 fascinating species that will swim by your table.
