Have a few minutes to kill before or between flights? Here’s to hoping your spare minutes will be in airports like these:

VANCOUVER INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT:
AQUARIUM
British Columbia’s natural and cultural beauty is on display throughout, but the biggest attraction is the 30,000- gallon aquarium, particularly with its huge jellyfish population.

O’HARE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT:
BRACHIOSAURUS
While O’Hare’s aviation-themed detours, including full-size model planes, are certainly captivating, they have nothing on the four-story-high Brachiosaurus skeleton looming in Terminal 1.

SINGAPORE CHANGI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT:
UM, EVERYTHING
The airport, awarded top honors across the globe for its “habitat,” has multiple gardens, a butterfly sanctuary , a koi pond and much more.

MINNEAPOLIS/ ST. PAUL INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT:
MALL OF AMERICA
Trains leave about every 10 minutes from this airport to the neighboring supermall. Of particular note: Your kids (and the kid in you) will giggle after playing in the supersize LEGO Imagination Center— a store and playzone nearly as tall as, well, O’Hare’s Brachiosaurus.

LOS ANGELES INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT:
OBSERVATION DECK
LAX’s famed Theme Building is probably best known for this full-globe viewing spot in a spacey-looking dome built in the 1950s.After three years of renovations, it re-opened to the public a couple of months ago . For now, it’s only open on weekends, but the panoramic view is worth the wait.

DENVER INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT:
MURALS
No airport art installation is more talked about than this one, featuring massive paintings of endangered animals and the anguished faces of children and other oddities by Chicano artist LeoTanguma. Passers-by may be confused at first, but his wild view of our country’s culture is worth a few minutes of your layover.
