  • the place was empty... Almost lifeless. A lot a lot of reading and exhibits in any kind. Not enough fun things or more interesting too bad... The fairly small aquarium also nothing transcendent was quick tour. €7.5 is pretty excessive for what is presented compared to other aquariums that I could visit.

  • We had a great time with our 2 kids 10 and 14 years. The building seems small from the outside, but the tour is on several floors. We learn many things, it's super rewarding. Kids also enjoyed, including the oculusrift or we will walk at the top of a wind turbine in 360, very impressive! The aquariums are also great. Bravo for this museum. It takes about 2 hours to visit. Go ahead!

  • Surprising place that tells the story of fishermen and supplemented by an aquarium. In general I'm not a fan of see animals in captivity, but I fell under the spell of the seahorses :)

  • Not bad as a museum especially for children. Make extra activities, otherwise it's a bit short.
