  • Machines that do not work, too much interactivity, really not interesting and expensive for what it is... In a beautiful site but not enough.

  • Visit very interesting as to the scope of all the world... The use of interactive terminals visits the very playful and interest is always stimulated and renewed... The 3D movie is really great!

  • 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.
