Downtown Aquarium, Denver Reviews

  • This was really a pleasure to visit. A bit quaint and small in stature but still packed with beautiful and fun goodies. Included an opportunity to feed stingrays! I will never forget that experience it was a lot of fun we got soaked! Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable including an opportunity to learn about and understand the indoor tiger enclosure. There was a huge waterfall storm like scenario they had set up that was kinda terrifying but awesome.. lots of both fresh and salt water fish, sharks and turtles. Sea horses, starfish and invertebrates! I would definitely visit again!

  • It seems odd to say that the best attraction of the aquarium was a tiger, but... the best attraction of the aquarium was the tiger. It's a decent sized place, costs as much as you would expect for this type of attraction, but has a good amount of exhibits and animals, and plenty of information if you wanted to find out more about them. The plaques were slightly displaced for the tanks however, as we ended up guessing a lot of what was meant to be where, but generally speaking, we had a really fun afternoon, despite it being on a very busy day.

  • Had a great time at this location. Lots of very cool stuff to see. From exotic fish to tigers. Even got to feed a stingray or manta ray. Definitely worth the money to check out. Turtles and big fish in the tunnel aquarium were probably the highlight. Also did the 4D experience but that wasn’t too thrilling or satisfying.

  • Outside, the building looks modern, but step inside the door to the exhibits, and you get the feeling of being right in the middle of everything. Kudos to the persons responsible for the design! The windows are big enough that everyone can see the aquatic life inside. On the exhibits that tend to draw more onlookers, the stress widens, and ropes separate the viewing area from the walking path. Strollers are welcome. We are glad that we choose to buy annual passes, because we will take our kids and their friends {some tickets allow that) repeatedly.

  • Pretty good variety of fish and quite large shark area. My little on enjoyed the sting ray interaction. Oddly there is a tiger enclosure in the aquarium. Gorgeous animal but felt bad for it as it's all indoors and very small. Admission fee is rather on the high end 30+ bucks.
