Excellent place to come stop by for 30 minutes of your lunch hour to just get away from the hustle on Bay Street. If you work downtown, I’d highly suggest you get the annual membership which gives you unlimited access to Ripleys for a year.

This place is just awesome! My young kids had a blast. There is a play area halfway through. Was perfect bc the kids ran off some energy before doing the second half. Do yourself a favor and take advantage of the cost check.

Only a handfuls of cities have such an amazing aquarium attraction. Be sure to stop by the interactive exhibits, such as the (sea) cleaning station and gently petting the rays!

It was a wonderful morning spent with my 3 year old granddaughter. Colours, fabulous visuals, experiences and a beautiful easy visit. I understand that on Saturday night is a great date night as there is jazz music piped in while you visit.

Definitely worth to check out. My favourite part was the jelly fish. I think I spent about 1.5 to 2 hours at the aquarium. You also get a chance to touch a certain type of baby shark and other sea creatures, which was pretty cool!

The Ripley Aquarium was a nice experience. Overall experience was good. My 6 year old really enjoyed herself. If you’re traveling with kids this is a very nice family activity to do with your kids. But for me a little pricey. But no regrets.
