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

CinéAqua, or Aquarium de Paris, is one of the most expensive aquaria I've ever visited. More than 20 euro's is way, WAY too much for this mediocre aquarium. Sure there are some nice creatures to see, but there just are not enough aquaria and animals to be seen. I've seen much better aquaria for a lot less money. A visit... More

Certainty not the Coney Island Aquarium or Sea World for those who are hyper critical but my nine year old daughter loved it. She wanted to visit it twice! If you look around Paris before heading here you may find - 5 € discount coupon cards for l'aquarium. There was a live pirate show with music and dancing in the... More

We went to l'Aquarium de Paris during a rainy day thinking that they kids will enjoy seeing the fish. And they did ! The place is like a maze and there are no clear instructions on where to go so we just followed the path and went to random places. There's an area where the kids can lean over and... More

We enjoyed our visit to the Aquarium earlier this month, especially the good variety of fish and the terrific octopus they have (many aquariums do not have octoput). But, I agree with other comments that the place desperately needs some TLC. Definitely do not expect to use the aquarium cafe for lunch; it was very disappointing. In one very dark... More

You might see a few fishes and sharks, okay. Though the place is so expensive, you'd better ran out of here and spot the Eiffel tower again and again, beautiful and far cheaper ! ahhahahahah !

My husband asked if we could stop in during our visit. They certainly had some good exhibits (plus the place was clean and well maintained), but overall I felt it was very costly for what you get in comparison to other aquariums we've visited. We went on a Thursday afternoon and didn't have any line-ups. My husband was still pleased... More
