You will certainly find a lot information on alive and not-alive-anymore creatures worth seeing here. But please take a while to look for a small exhibition of educational aids ordered by one of UdL professors in late 19th century. They had no underwater photos nor video nor 3D models - so the professor ordered a series of small sea organisms... More

I'm very surprised about all the negative comments. This is a very old museum and it's necessary to think about the resources that they had more than a hundred years ago and They have plenty of animals! it's true that the rooms need a renovation and maybe more explanation but that's all! The aquarium is small but modern. We really... More

After seeing the aquariums in Scheveningen and Oberhausen, this one is really disappointing. It's a bunch of fairly small rectangular aquariums, with only small fish. I'm no fish expert, but I didn't notice any special fish you wouldn't see at other places.

This is worth stopping at if you're down by the river or passing. There are some large freshwater tanks with corydoras and tetras which you don't usually see at large aquariums. There are some nice large tanks but it seemed there was refurbishment going on. Perhaps the building of a ray tank, which was empty. The large cube tank was... More

first of all the toilet was blocked. there are only two rooms with basic exhibits and each had over populated fish tanks. in one tank, all the fish had some disease around their gills and one poor fish gills were exposed because its flesh had rotted away. its showcase tank was disappointingly small and over populated also. this place should...

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
