  • my 6 year old son loves everything related to the sea and the ocean, passing to Biarritz I had heard of the city of l ' ocean and I do not regret d be there go, c is very playful, full of small games to do, he tested the virtual virtual diving surfing. I recommend for the small curious if not 6 years c is a bit young I think ca target children just a little older

  • Good use of technology to teach ocean science. Large open space inside museum allows students and families access to installations, without being too crowded. I enjoyed my time here and could recommend it for an afternoon out.
  • Check out 'Wheels and Waves'
  • J'ai trouvé cet endroit assez nul
  • Nice place to see for the life of the oceans. Extremely fun, several workshops for all ages, we sy fun regardless of age. Friendly

  • Very interesting, our children are loved and so do we. Very beautiful architecture, 3 D animations are bluffing, "the ocean and its secrets" stations hyper interesting, the batyscaphe, finally what, the staff is very nice. We also tested the snack and have been amazed at the quality of what we were served with kindness: excellent. Only downside: getting there the signage is a little lacking.
