Coming from Sydney which has a large aquarium this was rather small but was saved by a number of things, especially for me the trawler experience....fish wise they don't have much but I enjoyed the visit.

The aquarium have many different fish, and even an attraction with a boat in high sea. The layout is very good and you are attempted to continue the tour.

Lots to see both for the kids and the parents. Kids loves the views of the sharks and fish. Very easy access from Montpellier and surrounding villages.

Good value for money. Plenty to see and do. The large shark tank was particularly impressive. Very educational place for the children also.

I took my friends to the Aquarium. Even though they did not speak French, there were many things to engage us at the visit. The Exhibition is well laid out and entire afternoon was enjoyable.

I went with my partner, sister, brother in law and 2 nephews, aged 12 and 10. We had a fantastic time! You can see the penguins being fed if you time your visit well. The smell if awful, but they are very cute, and the carers / animators are very interesting to listen to. There are lots of children-friendly activities... More

An excellent aquarium. Great for the whole family. Lots of hands-on stuff. Excellent explanations and a realistic experience on a boat in a storm. A must-see for kids of all ages.

If you want to see marine animals and learn a lot about them visit this interesting aquarium. They com mostly from the Mediterranean Sea, hence the name "Mare nostrum", but penguins and tropical fish are not forgotten.
