Not a lot to see

It's small, dark and not a huge number of tanks to walk round. It is pretty good value and an easy way to kill a few hours

It's small and poor in terms of the fish and corals that you can see. Not so many big fish or sharks etc. I'd say it's mainly for young kids. You could just skip this attraction..

A lot of cases and few interactions. The fish are kept in small aquaria which makes it hard to get a proper look.

The aquarium is really not worth watching. The zoological museum is instructive and vast, it could be really interesting for kids and teenagers.

This is a place where fish are kept in small and not too clean tanks. It's in the basement of the building, dark, gloomy on the verge of claustrophobic. This place is so 20th century! I'm a fan of scuba diving (made about 700 dives now) and I never get tired of looking at fish, corals etc... but when I... More

I go to this aquarium once in a while but I would probably not if it were not for my daughter. It is small and when it is crowded it is quite claustrophobic. It is old fashioned, we like the panel where you have to recognize the sound of different animals, and the stuffed animals upstairs are quite something... right... More

The building was difficult to find. The aquarium was interesting but not exceptional. The museum of zoology was unusual in the way artefacts were grouped which made it slightly more interesting. There were no leeway for tourists as none of the legends were in English.

The aquarium is pretty standard and when we visited the sharks had been moved to an aquarium in Antwerp which was disappointing. The Zoological museum was just a large range of stuffed animals and specimens in jars which was interesting but nothing new. I would only recommend this to kill a bit of time.

This building has an aquarium in the basement with quite many interesting species, though a bit old fashioned, in a room next you find a large tank for sharks. On the 2nd floor is a zoological museum with a lot of stuffed animals

We traveled an hour only to find a dark, old-fashioned museum/aquarium which cannot compete with similar places around the world. Think of aquariums in Sydney, London or Lisbon. Liege is a different world, 50-odd years behind in terms of displaying and explaining their theme to the visiting public. The aquarium was okay and much more interesting than the rest of... More
