I must say I was VERY disapointed by the Aquarium. Considering the price (20€ for an adult / 13€ for Child), I was expecting something rather exciting. Finally, me and my kids were very upset. The visit was very quick and there was nothing really special in this place that is best to avoid. M Last but not least, the... More

If you are used to the aquariums of the US and places like New Zealand, then skip this place. The exhibits are just ok, not exciting, and the only thing in the touch tank were goldfish. But if you are in the area and in need of something for kids, it's ok. But I would not go out of my... More

It is said to have 5000 species and a few of the exhibits stood out for me. They include the hundreds of jelly fish. The massive tank that had hammer head sharks and other sharks swimming in it and the koi carp pool where you can "stroke" the fish. Good if you have children as it would interest most ages.

I must admit I was very disappointed and for what it costs I don't think it is worth the price. It could be entertaining for the children as there seems to be lots of activities for them to do .after about 10 minutes or so we had seen everything and we're out again.

A bit expensive, but the aquarium does have some interesting fish on display, as well as a "petting pond" where you can feed and/or touch fish in the shallow waters. We had some time on our hands, and enjoyed our visit to the aquarium, especially since it was really hot outside.

Not impressed, i was expecting more given the price and location, have seen much better for same price or less in other places. Jelly fish section is nice to see, the 'pick' of the visit. I won't go back, it is not worth it.

Aquariums are mostly busy and loud with many kids running around, but not this one. Maybe we were lucky but we found this place very quiet and relaxing. It is rather a small aquarium in comparison to others that we have visited in other cities, but still is very interesting to visit. The very interesting future is that you can... More

Had a nice afternoon at the aquarium with our 11 month old. It was terribly hot in Paris and took advantage of an indoor location to cool off (although it wasn't as cool as I thought it would be) Our little girl was just loved looking at all the fish and the best part was the "fish farm" where kids...

Staying in Trocadero

Neighborhood Profile
Trocadero
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.
