    Graduation season means celebrations. This is the first time I’ve been to a private event at the aquarium. And my first visit to the aquarium itself in years. Parking was easy at the lot across the aquarium building since it was early. Lane into the lot clearly marked and the attendant told me to take a ticket which would be validated at the event. Crosswalk to get to the other side.
    Lovely private ballroom with two areas out front for catering. Restrooms just around the corner. AV equipment available. The event was great and I was so proud of the graduates. Coat rack and beverages inside the ballroom. After the event I wandered outside for more beverages and cake. Also fruits and baked goods. I was provided a ticket for entry into the aquarium with my attendance to the event. I went around to the entrance for the exhibits and showed my ticket. Got on the escalator and marveled at the decor. Clear signage with detailed descriptions of the aquatic life and other animals. You can purchase private visits with animals online. These meet and greets sound very fun and educational.
    It was fun looking at the different tanks. The tunnel allowed me to walk under and surrounded by aquatic life. There are cool floor cut outs to look at the fish below. And bubbles where you can stick your head up in the tank. An educational display about flooding which gets you wet and a high perch to watch the tigers.
    Lots of activities as well - make a souvenir penny, buy a gold coin, face painting, feeding the stingrays, amongst others. In addition to the restaurant there’s a concession where you can purchase Starbucks drinks and snacks. The gift store had lots of cute, cuddly stuffed animals and apparel. Even a Build a Bear nook. So fun.
    There’s a garden next to the aquarium with a path and gazebo for picnics. A 4D theatre experience and a carousel outside. They have bike parking next to the aquarium. All in all it was a pleasant and relaxing experience. A little pricey but I was glad to attend to celebrate with the graduates.

    Passing through Denver, staying at a hotel near the basilica so I made an effort to stop in for a few moments of reflection. A lovely, peaceful space. Despite the size of the nave, it was a warm, welcoming atmosphere. I'd certainly recommend it for those so inclined.

    We visited the Money Museum (bring valid Drivers License or Passport) not recalling knowing what to expect, this is not the US Mint. It was fine display of the history or US currency but a little lacking in explaining.
    Very nice for young children as it also caters to them.
    Overall worth the visit if you are in the area.

    The building was closed on a Saturday afternoon; I'd guess it's only open on weekdays. The inside has been at least partly taken over by a telecommunications company, but the lobby looks interesting from the glass doors outside. And the outside of the building is great. Here are a few photos.

    If you are in downtown Denver it is worth taking the short stroll from 16th St Mall to see this beautiful historic building. They don’t build them like this anymore! Built in 1929, it has a lovely 15-story terra cotta exterior. The entryway is quite impressive with its murals and metal revolving doors. You can’t get too far into the building, but there are nice details and ceilings to be seen. Not worth a separate trip on its own, but worth checking out if nearby.
