If you was in Monaco Museum, in Lisboa or in Marineland in Antibes, don't go.

This Museum of Sea, translation of french name, has no real interest.

You will find everywhere advertising about sharks.

But comparing what you can find in other places, this sharks are very small (60 centimeters), other animals have no real interest, the visit is 25 minutes maximum for all this place and the entrance cost 13 € !

For me there are other really better places for this kind of activity, and even the museum part is without any interest.

To do only if you really not find something else ...

Nice new facility but most of the attractions here can also be found on the menus of the local restaurants. The seals seem well taken care of but confined to a very small area.

The aquarium is quite good for a small resort city . The museum is very small and in french only. If you have children with you - this is a must, they will love the fish and seals

A bit steep on the admission charge (13 euros per adult) but really nicely done. We loved the seals and the turtles. An imaginative layout in a lovely art deco building. The views from the top are also stunning. No information written in English however.

We expected more from the Aquarium. It is good for children but somehow we had thought that as they just recently extended it they may have included more "spectacular" things.
