  • On a day of rain, we decided to go to the aquarium in Paris; We weren't the only ones to have this idea. The show is really worth the glance, of great fish in Habitat as natural as possible! It is true that the lighting is a bit tight and the risk of falling is not absent. The explanations on the fish are a bit short sometimes. However, the price is too high! More of EUR 20.-per adult for 1 hour, or an hour and a half, that's a lot!

  • We have organized the birthday of our daughter (9 years) at the Aquarium. The formula is well, 3 hours in total with visit, game trail, buffet and gifts. This neither too long nor too short. Come on... Let's say 15 minutes of visit in the formula would have been welcomed because sometimes we a little fast pass some beautiful aquariums. But hey it's maybe just an opinion of adult. Facilitators are really nice and suitable for children. They all had a great time obviously, particularly when it came to feed the carp or learning how to catch a crab.

  • Interesting Aquarium, may be a bit small because we quickly made the turn for the price of admission. However to avoid the restaurant of the aquarium, a disaster: buffets that are not relined as, very greasy dishes. Tap water free drinks provided in the price of the meal €22 if paid at the restaurant €17 at the time of the purchase of the tickets. A bottle of water could still be included in the buffet price.

  • Very decent aquarium considering it's at the center of Paris. Some nice tanks albeit not the biggest ones in Europe/France. Good educational signs and a cool fish nursery. Great place to spend some time on a rainy weekend.
  • A great place to learn just beside Trocadero and in front of the Eiffel tower. Many species of sea life including medusas and sharks. Family friendly.
  • Really enjoyed it. It's small, but worth the visit (maybe a two hours visit if you take your time).
  • Best to go on the Paris Pass. Small but kids loved it. Our family of 5 would have cost 100€, too pricey for what u get. Paris Pass is available on Viator and includes this as part of 60 attractions free entry.
  • As a student it still cost me €16 to look around this very small aquarium. The tanks are great, but there weren't workshops in when we were there, no educational talks etc, which was disappointing. Also, there were a lot of undisciplined children which made it horribly loud inside. Overall it was okay, just overpriced and too noisy.
