  • The years pass but nothing changes. For a first visit you will be seduced by the variety of fish and the large pool of sharks. For having visited three times it does not recur. No more animated children apart from the quiz. The building itself is getting old. The entry must not increase under sentence of ' be prohibitive.

  • This is the second time I go with my 11 year old daughter and frankly nothing transcendent. Apart from the large aquarium where Sharks swim. the visit is very quickly made for 15 euros entry I find a bit expensive for what it is. even my daughter won't go back except to touch Starfish at the end of the circuit... Finally it is to do it once anyway

  • 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
