Good way to spend an hour or so on a rainy day. Not the biggest and best aquarium you will ever see but lots of good displays and a small touch tank is fun. Good for kids.

We spend one half of a rainy day in the Aquarium in Biarritz. It was a great experience with so many different species of the seas. We did not visit the other site of the Musee de la Mer which is located outside the city center.

We spent 2 hours in the aquarium. Lots of different fish species. Tanks and water very clean and clear. Well laid out with lots of viewing positions. There is a huge shark tank on the top floor you could spend an hour alone watching. 14 euro for an adult is a fair price. Good option for a rainy day in Biarittz

This is a great way to loose a few hours if the weather is bad. Some of the tanks and displays are extremely good. The last tank is by far the best, I could spend hours watching.
The children and teens alike enjoyed the two hours we spent there.
Good value and most enjoyable.

Really a well presented aquarium with lots to see and learn. The signs are in French, but if your language skills are a bit lacking there is still plenty to get from the visit. Lovely old original building, but the new parts really are right up to date and add to the experience. Two to three hours should allow you to take in and absorb everything, especially if you need to get out of the rain.
