If you'd like to see dead sharks then this is the place for you. As if it wasn't expensive enough to visit fish that you can buy at your local pet store, I certainly wasn't expecting to pay 20euros to look at dead animals. However, if you're oblivious to noticing sharks lay on the ground on their sides/backs then be... More

We have visited Paris Aquarium this morning. Honestly, this is the worse aquarium we have ever seen. There are some interesting fish there, but most of the fish can be seen in the local supermarket :-) Selection of sharks was not impressive at all. Most of the US aquariums are so much more interesting. Out 11-year old was very disappointed... More

As this is so close to the Eiffel Tower, we decided to go in. It was very pleasant inside and had a good selection of marine animals. You could even pet the fish :) The cafe inside is nothing fancy. If you want to pass about an hour or two, then this is worth dropping into if you like marine... More

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.

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
