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

It's a small aquarium in the centre of Paris but the tanks are clean and plenty of fish to see! The glass bubbles to put your head through give you a real view of what it is to be under the Sea, swimming with the sharks!

We went here because we had found a voucher on Smartsave for it. I had been to Paris before, so this wasn't really disappointing to me, especially because I knew going in that it would be small. It is, and ya, it's not the nicest aquarium I've visited, but I'm intrigued by sea creatures so I still enjoyed it! Not... More

Was there in July. The entrance made me feel like I was at the aquarium on Jenkinsons in Manasquan, NJ, but nice in side they had numerous large tanks. It was very cool and a good stop if you don't feel like waiting around the Eiffel Tower

This is quite a small Aquarium, but very well maintained and clean. Fascinating creatures and large tanks that you could sit a watch all day long! Would be a great detour for kids, and also has a small restaurant and shop. They also have a 'petting' pool with Koi Carps which is also pretty fun. For around 19 euro it... More
