  • Lyon aquarium is expensive, it is not big in 1 hours it is already complete, there are sharks, different types of fish, and a presentation on the sharks for the children given the tone of his may appeal to the children.

  • A small aquarium with fish of freshwater in the region and other sea but in the end a lot of disappointment. Aquariums are not necessarily well maintained, many identical species despite a willingness to travel the visitors on different continents. Bar closed at 4.30 p.m. (approximately) brief, nothing transcendent.

  • This hotel in the heart of Lyon. This aquarium is nice to visit family. It is not very big and in 2 h 00 we made the turn. For children it is always nice to see wonder around the pools. And in the end we can touch sea stars and yellowtail then this is the apotheosis. Half way a plot is for snacks.

  • Great aquarium, the food bar was closed, I don't know why. The aquarium has some great fish to see and very helpful people who work there, mind that their English is not to great so bring a dictionary or use Google translate
  • At 15 euros for adults the price is a bit steep compares to some of the other great attractions Lyon has to offer. I would recomend this only if you are a big fan of aquariums, or if you are a family as a lot of the aquarium is geared towards children.
  • Better go there when kids have school ;)
  • A little out of the city. Weird location. The place is very family and child orientated and is not that big.
  • Pour les grands et les petits
