  • I visited this aquarium on April 5, 2017, with my two children, they were happy to see beautiful tropical fish with in more crocodiles. Really recommend to all with a very reasonable entry price (€14 for one adult and three children). Thank you for your pricing policy for families.

  • Weekend extended on Paris with my girlfriend we were looking for a not-too-long visit has doing and makes regular visits. For only 5 euros (a paris that is so rare) we had a very good time in this very beautiful aquarium. Many fish of all colors and not too crowded compared to other places. A locker room and more would not hurt.

  • A nice variety of fish, few people, leave your coats in the locker room - it is very hot. The staff is nice, the animation around marine wildlife under the microscope is interesting. Expensive buffet with little choice - so the shrimp make you want to

  • Beautiful family outing, perfect for children from 3 years. All for a canon rate.
