  • The Vancouver Aquarium is an institution in the city, and for good reason. They exist to not only further the knowledge of aquatic life, but also provide a valuable resource for those who want to engage with what they would never see otherwise. The aquarium itself is open, well-designed, and has something for everyone. There are significant interior spaces that concentrate on certain ecosystems, with an intense focus on the local environment and the types of life in British Columbia's waters. A massive indoor tank provides a view of many species interacting. There are outdoor areas as well, where different instructional shows occur, providing additional context for the life on display and their behaviours in the wild. In terms of the facility, there are many amenities. A cafe is by the entrance, and of course there is a gift shop. There are many washrooms and water filling stations for those quick breaks, and there are even additional dining options for seasonal visitors. Nothing too fancy, but certainly filling enough if you forgot to pack a lunch. The added bonus of the location is that outside of the aquarium is one of the best parks in the world, so there's no shortage of experiences after you've ended your visit. A fantastic experience, and one that my family loves so much that we have annual passes.

  • Small aquarium but fun for my kid. I like how they are very considerate of our environment. Their cafe will not give straws or caps for your drinks to conserve plastic. The aquarium itself has a lot of different fish but some of the tanks need better maintenance as they are all growing algae and hard to see what's inside. The aquarium is also very hot during summers so don't expect to feel cool inside. It's not only customers either, you can see staff fanning themselves to stay cool.

  • Great place for a family to visit. Lots to see and learn about. Great location, can walk around Stanley Park once you're done inside. Would highly recommend for tourists/visitors as well. The 4D show is excellent and very popular with our family. Great place for all ages and is wheelchair accessible as well. The volunteers have been very knowledgeable and friendly. We will definitely be back!

  • This place it is great for adults and children. I believe it is a relaxing experience. I am from Brazil and I was impressed with the variety of aquatic species from Amazon they have. It can easily take 3 hours to see this place. The parking structure close to the front entry is small but there is a huge area around the aquarium where you can park (get ready to walk). They have a 4D cinema inside and a variety of activities like presentations and touching species.
