I really want my 20 euros back.. :( This place can be so much better but for some many reasons is not. The entry price is too big, the place looks old, not properly maintained, the diversity of fish very poor, toys and paintings instead of real fish.. Maybe my expectations were very high (their slogan is "not just another... More

Great location opposite Eiffel Tower. Aquarium is typical of such commercial operations - not really that much in it. Main part is big tank with a few sharks. You could get round whole place in 20 minutes so hefty entry price not worth it. However, crowded to popular. Best bit are the signs at petting pool saying No Fishing and... More

I really love fish so I'm trying not to be biased as all the fish were so beautiful. However, to be more objective, I feel like I have to give a negative rating as some changes could make it a lot better. Firstly, it would have been good to have more information about the different species and conservation work and... More

I went with my niece and we had a few hours spare, I was worried thinking we would be strapped for time. haha no! They might aswell not bother with the Aquarium, honestly they've paired with PlayMobil for some reason or other and so half of it is dedicated to PlayMobil toys of fish rather than actual real fish. The... More

I have visited aquariums in Norway, Denmark and Dubai which were superior to this one. We got there about one hour before they closed the ticket sales, and two hours before they closed all together. We thought we would have little time, but it turned out to be more than enough. The place wasn't crowded at that time, maybe because... More

We had the worst experience in Paris outside this aquarium. We tried once to go but it was already close so we asked a person there to tell us its timetable. He told us that closing time was at 7.00 pm. We visited again the day before our departure and we arrived at 6.00 pm. But they didn't let us... More

A lovely place for photos (http://www.monkboughtlunch.com/l-aquarium-de-paris-the-cineaqua-trocadero/), if not exactly the best aquarium in the world. I think a family with kids would be delighted by a visit here, but as a couple of adults we were a bit underwhelmed.

A small average aquarium. One of my least liked visits in Paris. Expensive (but you expect that in paris) could have more fish to see and things to do. I would not recommend.

We are disappointed with the variety of fish that this aquarium has to offer, considering the steep admission fee and the space it encompasses. We really admire Paris for its beauty, culture, history, and food, however, the city needs to hire a good consultant to make an attractive aquarium. Their main sponsor, i.e., Playmobil toys, are overwhelmingly present in every... More

We went to the aquarium on a whim late afternoon one rainy day because we wanted to get out and about but not be too affected by a pretty torrential downpour. The prices were a bit expensive for the size, considering I've visited the Georgia Aquarium and Lisbon oceanarium for less and they were much larger and more comprehensive -... More
