Texas State Aquarium Closed Until April 2

The four darling, daring dolphins at the Texas State Aquarium will be well taken care of as the city’s biggest attraction goes on hiatus during the coronavirus pandemic. The aquarium closed March 17 and plans to reopen April 2.

Yet another major tourist attraction in Corpus Christi has closed its doors due to the coronavirus pandemic. As of Tuesday, March 17, the Texas State Aquarium is closed through April 1. All events and programs at the aquarium also have been canceled or rescheduled to a later date.

The aquarium hopes to reopen in April. Some staff will remain on site to care for animals.

All tickets purchased in advance in 2020 will be valid for admission until the end of this year. For more information on tickets, email or call 361-881-1250.


Also closed is the Art Museum of South Texas and Harbor Playhouse.

The museum is closed until at least March 21. The community theater has canceled performances of “Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat,” going dark for the first time in 90 years. Although closed for the foreseeable future, the playhouse plans to pick up where it left off with “Joseph,” pending approval from the licensing company. “Pirates and Petticoats” will be rescheduled.


The USS Lexington Museum on the Bay remains open and is observing regular business hours. However, programs that could lead to having more than 10 people together at a time have been suspended. That includes overnight programs, educational field trips, confined space training, large group tours, and movies in the 3D mega-theater.

Also open is the Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History.
