This is a great place to visit for families. It's not cheap, but the various tanks are fantastic (sharks, tropical, etc) Buy tickets online for rebate and avoiding line-up. The location is ideal as it is night next to the CN Tower and the Sky...More

So much better than I expected. I think the best aquaroum I have been to. Must admit the Ripleys name made me think it might be tacky, but the entire aquarium is top notch. So many diffenent aquatic spaces.

Went with my 77 year old mom and my 11 year old nephew. We all loved it. We went early on a Saturday morning to avoid a long wait in line. Recommend for all ages. Great for out of town visitors.

The Sunday of a long weekend and a very rainy day made for a very busy day. The entrance line up moved fairly quickly, however, once inside it was very crowded. It was a little difficult seeing all the displays for how busy it was....More

Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner
Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the
outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is
celebrated by a number of monuments and museums,
giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier
destination for modern art, people here stroll through
the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy
the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe
