  • It is a small aquarium with a few fish you would not see anywhere else. Seals are fun to see, though. Watching seals is an attraction in itself. But apart from that, do not expect to see many unusal s...  more »

  • Nice place, plenty to see, but we went there for the kids. Picked up a little train outside it too, for a cheeky tour of the town with some whingebag old dear sat behind us tutting the entire way! Old whingebags aside, the aquarium is a nice place.
  • Amazing place and lots to see. Me and my wife do not have an interest in see creatures but that have changed since visiting. Only 14.50 for an pas for adult and I booked my o e online while in France but could not open the PDF with the ticked. Lady at the reception had no problem letting us in after quick look at the confirming email. Must see!
  • We used to visit the Musee de la mer very often with our children. But now we are very disappointed. Yesterday, while on a hike in Biarritz, our 3 year old son surprised us in front of the Musee de la mer with his urgent need to go the restroom. When we asked to use the toilette there, the very unpleasant woman at the front desk refused that. In consequence we had to run with a crying child on our arms through Biarritz to the next public restroom. We know that the Musee de la mer is not a public toilette and we respect that. But refusing to let a small child use it is below everything we ever experienced. Nevertheless, despite this bad and unfriendly employee, the Musee de la Mer is a superb place for submarine life.
  • It's a nice aquarium. It's not very big
  • A mixture of aquarium and museum which was interesting...a great selection of fish, sharks and crustaceans on display
