The downtown Denver aquarium is a very cool, large space with a wide array of fish, sharks and even a tiger. You could go for an hour or make a day of it. We enjoyed the incredible variety of fish and displays with large tanks.

The Aquarium restaurant was also very good. The kids meals were creative with a great mix of healthy options and two thumbs up in the macaroni and cheese from the kiddo expert.
