This is a lot of fun and really impressive. The sharks are what sold me! 2 hours are needed. Then have lunch next door.

The aquarium is fun to visit! Lot's of beautiful fishes to look at. Also, the place is quite cool, so i recommend visiting it in the hottest hours of the day to get some refreshment. It also has some small attractions which are also entertaining.

The aquarium was very nice and just good size for little kids. The ship-in-a-storm simulator was great as well as the spot where you were able to touch the fish too. The aisles were wide enough so it didn't get too crowded and the kids got to see all they wanted.

The aquarium is very nice. You can easily spend 2 hours with your children. You have a snack bar inside where you can get sodas, beer or sandwiches. Prices r quite expensive... The good thing is that the aquarium is right in the middle of a shopping center with several restaurants and shops

We've previously been to the aquarium and we're pleased that it was as interesting as the last time we went. Still had plenty to see and now the octopus too which unfortunately didn't move whilst I was watching it. Love the penguins and the seahorses.

Having visited the aquarium 3 times in the past 3 years, it remains a great day out! There is so much packed into the aquarium I can't see why anybody would be unimpressed as there is something for everyone! The facilities are clean and modern, informative and interesting. There are plenty of interactive tasks for kids on the way round... More

We are regular visitors to the South of France and we always make a point of coming to this aquarium. My 6 year old loves it and this year he got to take his 1 year old twin brother and sister round it. He was absolutely delighted, telling them all about the different sharks and Ray's etc. My husband and... More

Very good aquarium with lots to see. Loads of different fish to see and the sharks are great. There is one section where you feel like you are on a boat which was really good even though a couple of people in our party felt seasick.

Bit expensive for the price compare with others in the region. Max one hour enough for the tour. The presentations are not bad. Located in the highly traffic area.
