The best thing about this place is that it is very different from Nancy's other attractions like all the historical buildings, hotels, etc. Do not expect a grand aquarium, it is small, but it has many interesting fish to check out. Great to visit in winter when it's too cold to walk outdoors. Kids would love it.

Very cheap and fun to look around. Certain species of animals which are not usual. Make sure to look above for things above you or you will miss them, a nice range of areas to look at and pretty gardens when leaving. Staff did not speak English and the website stated multi-lingual but there was very little writing in English... More

This Museum has exhibit of tropical and marine fishes. The ponds are set up in its natural habitat to suit the type of fishes. Flora and Fauna flourishes in the ponds, thanks to the natural lighting on the ponds. The sides of the ponds are bound by transparent glass walls which gives the viewer a glimpse on the lives of...

really enjoyable museum, and especially useful if you have young children that you want to keep busy. Even for adults it is a nice way to pass time.

Over 60's only 2.20 euros for a really good aquarium and animal museum. Really good way to spend a couple of hours.

This aquarium is well worth a visit, especially if you have the Nancy Six Museum Pass (only 10 Euro). The tanks are amongst the best we have seen, and we've seen a few. Fastidiously clean tanks, and much work has gone into the creation of perfect little aquatic worlds. Upstairs there are a lot of stuffed animals, which may not... More

The aquarium had some animals that i had never seen. There were massive hippos and walruses in the museum which made it so fascinating.

I went yesterday with my kids, age 8 and 12. They LOVED it. They are used to going to large Aquariums in the US but rated this one as excellent. We spent there a little more than one hour, and they were excited and happy the whole time. There are very special and interesting fish. Very interesting for adults too.... More

I love aquaria - I know I can find them near oceans or seas. But here's an aquarium in the North Eastern part of France - no sea to be seen - and bang in the middle of the city. Ehh? So we went there and were amazed. The tanks on offer may be on the small side but they... More
