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

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

Thank you for your comments. I am sorry you had to queue for we try our best to speed up the process. Prices are €20,5 for Adult and €13 for Children aged 3-12. The Aquarium is free for children under 3. I am surprised you did not find any sign in English, as every description and explanation is translated both... 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 :)

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

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.
