I wasn't expecting much looking at the building from the outside, but I was pleasantly surprised once we got in. My son in particular loved the tunnel and all the colourful fish. There's also a great playground area and interactive features for older children.

I went during the summer, so it may be less busy when kids are in school. I'd still recommend going on a weekday or weeknight when it's maybe likely to be less crowded. The exhibits are fantastic and there's so much to do. You can...More

The sharks are a must see, stingrays are amazing as well. There's a area where you can pet the stingrays. Great location next to the CN tower and walking distance to the union station.

I don't consider myself a huge fan of visiting aquariums usually, but Ripleys exceeded my expectations. Lots of beautiful fish and several sharks to see. There is an area with a conveyor belt to stand on, and it slowly moves you through the aquarium allowing...More

We have visited aquariums all over the world, but this one had something we've never experienced before... you walk through a tube with the water all around you. Sharks are swimming over your head! A very slow moving walkway allows you to feel Like you...More

You should be fine. Just try not to go on a Saturday because it can get pretty crowded and almost imposible to see all the animals. They have the AC going so no humidity. Enjoy!
