Ripley’s aquarium is a great day trip with a baby especially once they are crawling but it is also a nice day trip for caregiver with a younger baby. It’s definitely on the pricey side and I have yet to see any tickets ever go on sale but it’s nice to change things up. If you like going then the yearly pass is easily justified with two visits.
The visuals of the aquarium are definitely interesting for a baby and there are some tunnels to crawl through for a crawling baby. There is a small play area at the end as well as some activities for older kids. I believe it can get very busy so it could be a bit overwhelming on the weekend. There are nursing rooms available which is nice.
There is kids programming starting at age 2+
