    My daughters 2 and 5 years, asked us every day that followed our visit, if we were going back to the aquarium! A great visit, an aquarium clean, well thought out, very playful, it takes 2 h visit when even once inside. We saw an animation with a healer who was feeding the fish with explanations... Frankly it was great for small and large we loved!

    A nice aquarium to visited a bit disappointed by the giant octopus, who did not want to show but a lot of things to discover on this animal

    Good aquarium to bring young children to - there are English language signs as well as French ones. It wasn't crowded when we went in the morning - but by the look of the queue lines they have outside the building, I think they do tend to get very crowded at times.

    Lovely aquarium not much to see but has a nice theme, the restaurant is decent but i recommend the nearby restaurants outside the aquarium

    Very nice aquarium. Especially the big aquarium with shark's, manta's, and many others is a great view. You can have a nice afternoon here, kid's will have a great time gazing at all the fish and sea life in the different aquariums.
