Took my 2yo here and she seemed to enjoy it. But don't come here expecting extraordinary. There are some nice features but at $17 for an adult plus $5 for parking I felt that overall it was just "OK". The best part is the Bengal Tiger... but why at an aquarium? Nice way to spend a morning or to burn some time with your kids.

I love the aquarium. There is not only fish and sea creatures, but they have birds, tigers, sea otters, frogs, snakes, and other reptiles. Every time I go there I have a great time and find something new. They have certain times where you can see them feed the fish and sometimes they let you feed the fish, so it can be very interactive. I would definitely recommend going to the aquarium, it makes a great day trip.

What a fun visit! Loved all of the different fish and animals! Being able to touch and feed the sting rays at the end was so exciting! A must visit while visiting Denver!

My 3 year old liked this aquarium a lot and so did I. Although it was annoying when grown men would "hog" an exhibit and not let any kid close to see the animals. My daughter lost out on seeing stuff because of this. Parents/adults were not as well behaved as children. I was pushed a few times by adults. Experience is good when you can see exhibits. A little overpriced but it is downtown Denver
