Go just to see the Brazilian Bat fish. Amazingly strange. The other fish were good but this was the best. Really enjoyed this aquarium as you could easily see all the fish in the eye level small tanks on the walls.

The best thing about this place is that it is very different from Nancy's other attractions like all the historical buildings, hotels, etc. Do not expect a grand aquarium, it is small, but it has many interesting fish to check out. Great to visit in winter when it's too cold to walk outdoors. Kids would love it.

Very cheap and fun to look around. Certain species of animals which are not usual. Make sure to look above for things above you or you will miss them, a nice range of areas to look at and pretty gardens when leaving. Staff did not speak English and the website stated multi-lingual but there was very little writing in English... More

This Museum has exhibit of tropical and marine fishes. The ponds are set up in its natural habitat to suit the type of fishes. Flora and Fauna flourishes in the ponds, thanks to the natural lighting on the ponds. The sides of the ponds are bound by transparent glass walls which gives the viewer a glimpse on the lives of...

This aquarium is well worth a visit, especially if you have the Nancy Six Museum Pass (only 10 Euro). The tanks are amongst the best we have seen, and we've seen a few. Fastidiously clean tanks, and much work has gone into the creation of perfect little aquatic worlds. Upstairs there are a lot of stuffed animals, which may not... More

The aquarium had some animals that i had never seen. There were massive hippos and walruses in the museum which made it so fascinating.
