    Lots of different fish, as well as sharks and turtles. At the end there are three attractions but there were so many people we have made as the nautibus. One Board avoid going to the aquarium in rainy weather there is a crazy world.

    France generally does aquariums better than we do in the UK, and this is a great example. Kills a few hours, and fun for all ages. Tip: If you want to see a better aquarium, stop at Nausica in Boulogn...  more »

    Excellent for a 5&11yr olds and adults alike. Came yesterday in the rain and the choca car park was enough to make us turn around and come back today in the sunshine as it opened. Much better!

    Beautifully set out b aquarium. But on the expensive side but certainly well worth the visit. Kids will love done of the unique things within the aquarium. In an not going to say what because that will spoil it.

    Lovely for kids and adults. The 360° space is wonderful for observing closely different oceans’ living. Amazing experience by touching fishes. We’ve been there.3 times already and we will go.back again!

    Aquarium itself is fantastic, there is no crowd control so extremely busy. Get there early as queues are long, we arrived at 9.20am before opening and took over half an hour to get in. The kids loved it!!
