This aquarium is not impressive for a big city. It's quite expensive and could use some additional care. It took us approximately one hour to go through the aquarium slowly. There is one tank where children are allowed to touch the fish--it's a popular area. I particularly enjoyed the jellyfish aquariums, but don't think it's worth the price.

The price is definately not cheap but the lighting and some of the species on display is fantastic. There are some exquisite finds in the aquarium. I would recommend to visit the place if you like aquariums.

For being a major city the aquarium is very bad. Not much to see and very torn down. The only positive thing was the fish-touching area.

Me and my sister had been wanting to visit this aquarium all day and left our hotel early to check it out -- only to be left disappointed! Luckily we got one ticket for free, so only had to pay €10 each. I wouldn't of paid the full amount! It took us a very short time to explore the place,... More

I visit an aquarium anytime there is one nearby - this was my most recent visit to the CineAqua in the last decade. It is a nicely done aquarium with lots of educational components mixed in for learning about changes to global water temperatures, understanding impacts on different types of fish, and seeing what types of creatures survive in harsh...

My husband and I visited here on our honeymoon. Prior to our holiday, we purchased Paris passes, which gave us free access to the aquarium. However, when we looked at the ticket prices at the aquarium out of curiosity, we noted it's quite steep! I'd imagine it would be good to do with kids

It was a rainy day so I needed an indoor activity. The Aquarium de Paris fit the bill. A little expensive for what it offers, still a nice way to spend an hour or two. I saw some fish I had never seen before and I always love a good shark tank. And, it's only a couple of blocks from... More

There are some lovely fish on display and a good shark tank. I was disappointed by the lack of information about the fish (many tanks had no info or didn't match what was in the tanks). Lots of children who seemed happy enough. Slightly underwhelming overall compared to other European aquariums.

Neighborhood Profile
This is the neighborhood of grand and impressive Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher, florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury and splendor, all with a view over Paris and its most famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings are small art galleries and homes of historical significance. With a rich legacy from 19th century politics, art, and architecture, you can’t help but be reminded of the belle époque, the Universal Exhibitions and the nobility that have frequented and shaped these streets.
