our 8 and 3 year olds loved this spent all day here, don't miss the once per day only mermaid show, kids loved it, also the feeding session for the Koi's, so check programme guide before you start!

Visited today as not far from our hotel and we got a half price voucher on l'open bus trip. 20 euros for us both to get in and certainly worth double. The most beautiful aquarium I have ever seen and I have visited loads! All fish are in stunning condition and tanks are huge and beautifully designed. Well worth a... More

As a fairly regular visitor to Paris, we were looking for something different to do. Our hotel had €5 discount vouchers, so we thought we'd head over and give it a go. Without the voucher it would have been €20 each, whilst we were buying our tickets, the guy on the counter asked if we wanted to add lunch to... More

Judging from past reviews, I might not have made it to the Aquarium but for a special movie festival promoting the arrival of Netflix in France. I had a great time at both the festival (which showed a couple of episodes of Le Chat Botte) and the aquarium itself. Located within the 16th arrondissement complex that includes MOMA, Musee de...

It is said that the movement of the fishes gives a very soothing and calm feeling. You really feel it at the Aquarium in Paris. You get to know a whole range of the aquatic life. The sharks are the most sought after place here and an Octopus also. It is very interesting to see the movements of the fishes... More

The aquarium is very close to Eiffel Tower. It's to the right of the Jardin du Trocadero fountains as you cross bridge from the Tower. The aquarium is small but nice. For size and quantity of displays, the price is a little high. What's great about this aquarium is that it's close to the Eiffel Tower and it's probably going... More

The Aquarium requires at least one visit while in Paris. The variety of species, the historical background, the rest room and restaurants, all combine to make it a worthwhile attraction.

We decided to go to the aquarium on our first day in Paris - just have something light and easy to do while adjusting to the time change. The aquarium itself is nice - it was not crowded, and there was a decent variety of species to see. But compared to other aquariums of similar size and cost, it was... More

So I've read tons of reviews before I go, from "very bad and very expensive" to "wonderful place". Still, I went with my family (3 young kids). Bottom line, it's not a huge place, you can go around in couple of hours. I never went to other aquariums to compare, but at the end of the day, kids were very... More

After 20 minutes we'd seen everything. Small aquarium, but with beautiful sealife. Wasn't so busy and much cooler then outside, so we thought we give it a try. Loved the petting pool, where you van stroke the Carpers.

Neighborhood Profile
This is the neighborhood of grand and impressive Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher, florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury and splendor, all with a view over Paris and its most famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings are small art galleries and homes of historical significance. With a rich legacy from 19th century politics, art, and architecture, you can’t help but be reminded of the belle époque, the Universal Exhibitions and the nobility that have frequented and shaped these streets.
