Impressive aquarium but expensive and poorly organized. Disappointed.

The good part is that the large tank is quite impressive and the variety of fish is pretty good. The not so good part is that the entrance fee is quite hefty (20€50 for adults... read more

Disappointed ! Costs quite a lot ( 17 euros ) and doesn't worth the money! Not well conserved, reduced number of species compared with good aquariums, just the little little ones enjoyed. It's a pity, cause it's in the heart of Paris

The good part is that the large tank is quite impressive and the variety of fish is pretty good. The not so good part is that the entrance fee is quite hefty (20€50 for adults and 16€ for kids) and that the organization is poor. There are some activities for kids such as the story-telling session and the drawing session,... More

Me and my partner came here on our 1st day in Paris after a lot of sightseeing, nice selection of fish and other sea creatures to see. Shark tank was also cool, kids seemed to love it. Price wasn't an issue for me, depends if your a couple or a group. Overall had a nice time here and something to... More

Terribly disappointed with the visit, especially since tickets are very expensive (20.50 for adults, 13 euros for kids 12 and under). We went with our kids, 5 and 10, and spent barely an hour there. For almost 70 euros, we found it very expensive for what was offered. The most interesting exhibits were the shark tank and a tank that... More

If you've seen similar venues in Barcelona, Seaworld, this is à kind of disappontment. The place is close to the eiffeltower so can give à good combination for à day to fill in paris.

I really enjoyed my visit to this aquarium. My review was always going to be biast as I absolutely love sea life. The place is pretty big in size but like another reviewer has said, some of the space is wasted and could have more tanks. I am used to aquariums in the uk which aren't very big at all... More

We were out looking for something to do with our 4 year old and figured the aquarium would be a hit since she had visited many back home and always enjoyed herself. This was definitely not up to the standards that you come to expect here in paris and not worth the 50+ € we paid for a family of... More

This is a great place to take young kids especially on rainy days. Viewing of tanks and all attractions are designed with younger children in mind. Use Tracadero Metro stop then go down the stairs toward the Effiel Tower,

We been to an aquarium in every city we visit. This one was pretty good. Worth the 20 €. At the end you get to feed the fishes and they eat directly out of your hand.

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!

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.
