Denver’s Downtown Aquarium holds more than a million gallons of water featuring over 500 species of animals. For a landlocked state, the aquarium is a wonderful place for Colorado to learn about the exotic underwater world that comprises of over 71 percent of the Earth’s surface.
More than 95 percent of the oceanic world remains unexplored. Of the small percentage that has been seen, it is an amazing and captivating world full of life. Downtown Aquarium touches on nine different underwater habitats, each varying greatly in terms of life forms and regions – North America, In The Desert, Under The Sea, At The Wharf, The Rainforest, Coral Lagoon, Sunken Temple, Shipwreck and At The Beach.
All of the water animals support nearly 50 percent of all the species on Earth including humans. The Denver Downtown Aquarium restaurant housed inside the aquarium provides seafood for those wondering what types of sea creatures are fit for a meal.
Those who are interested in getting up close and personal with the fishes can participate in the interactive Stingray Reef touch tank or take one of the many learning programs that Denver’s aquarium has to offer. For those wanting to celebrate surrounded by the amazing sea life, the Nautilus Ballroom and Dive Lounge are available for corporate meetings, rehearsal dinners, weddings, anniversaries, bar mitzvahs and birthday parties. The ballroom can seat 50-250 guests with an award-winning culinary team and in-house Denver wedding coordinator on hand.
