Have you ever had dinner under the ocean? It might not REALLY be physically be possible, but at Downtown Aquarium you're not far off!
This Colorado aquarium is still a proper aquarium where you can spend your family day out at. There are a number of exhibits where kids can learn ALL about the amazing creatures that live under our oceans.
The North America exhibit introduces kids to sealife right on their doorstep! Kids - how many of them do you recognize?!
There is an entire exhibit for the d!esert too, and all the creature which have had to adapt to how dry their homes are. Pretty amazing stuff! Of course, from this to Under The Sea is a BIG leap - where you cansee all the beautiful coral reefs that are found all over the world.
Kids can explore the amazing Wharf exhibition where they can learn about all the animals that can survive in what is actually a really tough environment with all the waves constantly crashing, and they can explore the Rainforest. Did you know the rainforest makes up 7% of the entire planet? Pretty incredible!
Think that's a lot? That's not all! Shipwrecks, beaches, sunken temples...it's fascinating experience!
