  • Lots of beautiful and interesting fish. A good place to visit with kids.
  • Wide variety of marine animals. Very nice output with your family. Interesting for the young and the old. Downside access difficult with stroller and unsuited to the disabled

  • I went to visit the different aquarium of paris. This and that in Trocadéro. To be honest, from a price perspective (5 euro compared to 15 at the Trocadero), this aquarium is unbeatable. But even better, there is no possible comparison with that in Trocadéro. The bins are much more numerous, with more great content! tropical is far superior to that of the Trocadero that don't reach that painfully the same level of a pet store in short the choice that is needed, if the side decoration it leaves a little to be desired (it is in the 60s!)

  • Affordable (7 euros full fare, 5.50 euros reduced price), however the tour is done in less than an hour.

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