The Vancouver Aquarium is first and foremost a center for marine conservation, research, and animal rehabilitation, but it is also one of the most popular attractions in Vancouver.
The Aquarium is the largest in Canada and one of the largest in North America. It covers over 100,000 square feet and is home to more than 50,000 animals. Depending on their origin and habitat, animals are displayed in a number of fascinating galleries. If you are wondering what to do in Vancouver with kids, this is a great place to visit. Many animals such as dolphins and whales can be seen in live shows and some can be visited during feeding time.
Visiting the Vancouver Aquarium is fun for the entire family, and the kids are guaranteed to love it. If they happen to ask, tell them that they do not catch whales to put them in the aquarium. They bring them in if they are hurt or need help, or they transfer them from another aquarium.
