I was born in La Rochelle and I remember that as a child my parents often took me there. This summer I wanted to go back there with my boyfriend. And it was like in my memories ! The aquarium is... more »
Very enjoyable and educational visit to this well laid out aquarium. Not too busy thanks to covid restrictions. Can definitely recommend for adults and kids - we learned a lot despite being regular.... more »
The visit was incredibly short and lackluster for the price, but much worse right now is that there were zero measures taken for covid. They let way too many people in, even though we had a timeslot..... more »
Great place to visit, good value for money. We spent hours here and visiting in january the place was empty. The upside jellyfish were our favourite.
What an excellent aquarium. It's really well laid out with great exhibits and there is loads to look at and there is so much more in there than I thought there would be. The sharks and turtles were amazing to see and my 2 year old nephew loved it, well worth a visit especially for young kids. It wasn't too expensive either at €16 each (not sure about kids). You can pay €19 and get an audio guide but there is no need because there are signs in English and French explaining what the exhibits are.
Very beautiful aquarium. Compared to Sealife or other aquariums this a much better one when it comes to variety and style. You can easily spend half a day with family and kids here. The collection is huge and there is a auditorium for kids. Beautifully decorated and designed. Absolutely recommended
Fun. Well organized. Educational.
Calm today, everything looks new and clean. PRO TIP: Free parking at the maritime museum.
