I was surprised that my teenager would want to visit an aquarium in a city as exciting as Paris. She has been to remarkable aquariums on our travels and this small aquarium did not compare. Still, it was a nice little (though expensive) aquarium that she thoroughly enjoyed. It was a nice break from being a tourist. Thank you Trip... More

Went here on the off chance it may be good, that is an understatement, aquariums aren't really my kind of thing but this is incredible, such a huge shark tank in the centre, never seen so many species all together, one huge shark was amazing... Had pretty much everything else and the jelly fish array was awesome too :)

Entry is quite expensive when you consider the number and variety of exhibits, however, it is in the heart of Paris where nothing is cheap. Although I've seen more impressive aquaria, the kids loved it and the exhibits are well designed to be at the eye level of the future marine biologists! Some of the displays which impressed the kids... More

We visited in December 2014. We had a two for one coupon so didn't pay full price, and quite pleased we had not. It is not worth 20 euros per adult. The four, three and two year old children we had with us had a good time though, but I think older kids would certainly find it boring. The touch... More

It was not worth it. I received a flyer for this place at the Eiffel tower so I thought I'd check it out. It was small and offered not many variety in the exhibits. A waste of time unless you go with very little kids (like under the age of 5)

We have certainly been to better aquariums, especially those in Osaka, Japan and Baltimore, USA. This one was pretty average but it came in handy with a seven year old girl who was pretty tired of museums and fancy restaurants. The only drawback is that despite not actually being a world class aquarium, they charge as if they are. Families... More

We were there and planning to look around and see if it's worth a visit since the ticket costs 20.5 euros. My husband had an urge to use the restroom. He politely asked the guard/security if he could use the rest room. The guard rudely acted like a bouncer (it's an aquarium not casino or club) told my husband it's... More

I took my daughter here this week and was surprised by how little there was to see. Many areas seemed to be under construction and the exhibits that were open were not very exciting. I wouldn't return.
