  • The most visited site of Brest. We go there regularly with children who demand it. They love all pavilions (with a slight preference for the sharks of course). He must avoid the too busy days or get up early. The entrance fee is a bit high, you should plan to stay there long. That said, inside, you can eat for too cheap or then eating her picnic has taken care to bring.

  • Take yourself here for a few hours. Our kids loved it. We loved it! On arrival don't get too upset by the external appearance of the footpaths. They need to be maintained and cleaned up. More importantly get inside and look around the sea life is amazing and we as adults enjoyed it. Good facilities, restaurant is good and not too expensive. Gift shop as more than enough products to remind yourself of your trip.
  • A wet day on holiday made this a great place to visit. Loads for kids to see and do and a great range of species separated in different zones e.g. tropical, polar, temperate. A good gift shop and book store. A heavy emphasis on research which was good. I give 4/5 as it was almost entirely in French and the grounds were covered in weeds which was a shame and looked shabby. Free parking, easy to get to and a good restaurant. At €72 for a family of 5 it was good value. A visit won't disappoint.
  • A great day out, especially if the weather is a bit grey. Lots of animals and fish to see. Kids loved it
  • Great aquarium with lots of animations. Deep water fishes are also here.
  • We went to Oceanopolis so my girlfriend could learn more about the sea life, and she loved it! Discovering all those different animals, and all the explanations along them taught us a lot. The zoo is very well organized with the different areas, and there are the feeding shows of the animals that you shouldn't miss.
