  • We had a very good day. the aquarium is provided. There is no sense to visit, we visit the pavilions in the sense that we want. We even saw a recent 3D film. The children were met.

  • We trhoroughly enjoyed our visit. The films, the displays and of course the animals are incredible. It would have been great if there was more written in another language, it is a europe wide attracti...  more »
  • An aquarium with 3 spaces varied and very interesting! Polar space is large and offers full of animation, especially for children. Similarly for the tropical space where can see several species of sharks! Educational areas in each of the spaces are very informative and each aquarium is well accompanied by explanatory signs that make the live courses! The staff is very friendly.

  • 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.
