Enjoyable family outing with older children. Good Denver experience if you have a few hours. We would not recommend the adjoining restaurant however, and admission prices are high. 🐠

this is not the biggest or the best aquarium, but aquarium is always educational and informative, especially for children/ parking fee of 7$ looks too expensive.
