You can see impressive sealife from all over the world with special effects. It is well worth visiting it.

Excellent value for euro 15.00. Ingenious utilisation of an old ship and an old submarine! Very effective explanation of the various weathers at sea!

Great aquarium with lots to see and do and even a simulated trip on the high season which my kids loved to bits. Even better it being so quiet thanks to French school kids having gone back

I planned to send my husband there with our 6 year old and do some shopping but changed my mind and joined them. I did not regret it, the place features good choice of sea creatures and entertainment such as an imitation of a ship bridge during storm. We all had great fun!

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.
