  • Went here with the kids on a rainy day. Incredible interactive stuff to keep them entertained. There was a surf thing in VR that was amazing. And Dad got to sneak off upstairs for a coffee. 
  • disappointed by the city, a very open space in which we get lost upon entry, animations that didn't work... However well loved the film of Cousteau... A lot of things to read... the less things to do than what we expected!

  • I recommend it. Very fun, educational and interactive museum. Really tip top! To optimize its culture G, nothing better.

  • 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.
