  • "Yes. "I've experienced better" is exactly what I'm thinking back to this aquarium where I went 2 times. That pleases children but the ratio quality / price is really low.

  • To please my nieces we were visited the aquarium. I have to say that I came to the opening no change. In a 1/2 turn is done you are offered a souvenir photo at 15 euros entrance at 14 euros. The day is expensive!

  • 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
