I've been to several large aquariums around the world, and this one is good, but not worth a special trip. The main attraction are the sharks, especially an area where they can swim over you as you walk through a glass tube.

It’s a very nice place to visit with or without children. They have sharks and species from all over the world. It’s divided into 3 floors and the personnel is great giving explanations. Recommended.

Set inside a shopping mall, this little gem takes you on a journey through several different floors and into the “sea” to see some of the coolest fish around. Can’t wait to take the kids.

I first visited L'Aquarium on November 27, 2016. It had only been open for 3 weeks, so I reserved my opinion for a later time believing it just needed to 'grow'. I went back last week. I was greatly disappointed. Not only had it not...More

Tiny tiny tanks for amazing creatures that look in distress. Massive shame on them. I was assured there were big tanks but they lied to me. Also the service is beyond belief bad. Awful place
