Great aquarium in the heart of downtown Denver. There is a habitat for miniature tigers, and the shark tank's residents are worth the visit on their own. The aquarium setup is modern and impressive. Be sure to pose for the green-screen photo at the entrance....More

What an amazing experience with the family!! The whole place was beautiful! The food was great too. Staff was very friendly and helpful!! Only downside was the gift shop gifts were a little on the pricey side and were cheaply made to break easy.

I love fishes so this was a great experience. It’s pretty small but I loved it. They have turtles and sharks. Also they have a mermaid shoe at 6pm that was pretty nice especially for kids.

Lots of fun for kids of all ages! Plenty of really cool and rare fish to check out! Tigers seemed a bit out of place, but also kinda cool.

We enjoyed our time at the Aquarium. Aspen the sloth was so fun to meet! We recommend the meet and greet! My 13 year old loved to get to feed and pet a sloth!

It was spring break, so we waited in line for quite a while (30 minutes), but the aquarium is really great. I definitely recommend going during the week (and not during spring break or the holidays) for a more relaxed visit. We still had a...More

Very small aquarium by most standards and very pricey. Owned by Landrys. You can be in and out in an hour and Denver has better choices that are much less expensive. If you have little kids, the Children's Museum in the same parking lot is...More
