- Too small, most of the fishes displayed can also be seen in a small aquarium shops. - Too crowded, full of children crying and running arround. - All the atractions are only in French. Not a total vaste of money but definitely doesn't worth €20 pp. Consider internet ticket for skipping the long que.

Before visiting this aquarium we were already apprehensive after reading negative reviews however still decided to try it. Costing €20.00 for each of us we expected more to do and for us to be there longer than just over 30 minutes. There are no complaints about what is there for example the variety of species however it just didn't feel... More

As it was raining we decided to do something indoors, Just across the Eiffel tower we found this aquarium, a nice experience, lots of different fish and sharks. Big tanks with great photo opportunities. One area were you can even feed and touch the fishes, great for kids.

Great place. I especially recommend if you are with children. And a great location, 5 minutes from the Trocadero. Have a good time, you will not regret.

Great diversion on a cool and windy day in Paris. If you travel to Paris with young children a trip to the aquarium is great as it is walking distance from the Eiffel Tower. A bit pricy for the hour you spend walking through. However, I did appreciate that all the tanks had labels available in French, English, and Spanish.... More

We visited here and it was very quiet which was fine for us. We more-or-less had the whole place to ourselves which was great. They have a large shark tank with viewing areas at different stations. We got some great photos of the sharks and of a cheeky octopus. The best part for us was when we were able to... More

This used to be a fantastic place to go with children and the addition of a mermaid show was a thrilling to my little one, I always recommended the bento boxes lunches as they were a break away from the normal kids lunch and a great meal so imagine my disappointment when we get there to see they had gone...

Thanks for your comments. There must be a misunderstanding. Our Restaurant still serves its famous bento boxes lunches from Monday to Friday, except during Paris school breaks. During school breaks and on every Saturday and Sunday, the Restaurant serves a lunch buffet (or a brunch buffet). It is furthermore a pity you were not clearly told by our staff that... More

Queued up for ages with 2 11 yr olds to part with 66 Euros. Aquarium was average and far inferior to aquariums in other major cities. There was no allowance made for non-French speakers as all descriptions, explanations and films were solely in French without any hint of a sub-title or translation. As the aquarium is marketed to tourists who... More

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 :)

Staying in Trocadero

Neighborhood Profile
Trocadero
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.
