My 2 adult children and their parents all LOVED the Aquarium. Cool exhibits and exciting space. All the signage was in French, but we got the idea. Cool sea creatures. Go see it!

I have been there twice, and every time was a good experience. Staff is lovely and helpful. There is a lot to see (and a lot of space). I just think it is too expensive, even with reduced prices (students, etc.)
I would recommend it though!

I liked this place. We went on a week day morning so there was no one there. It was really well organised, they had put a lot of effort into the displays and information, and most of all, the tanks were well maintained, meaning the fish didn't look too annoyed that they were incarcerated for life.
There was also a kind of ship's bridge to stand on that simulated various weather conditions, right up to storm force winds. A nice touch.

We spent about 3 hours wandering around, enjoying the animals and all the aquarium had to offer! The penguins and 'storm simulator' where highlights! (If you have children, hold on to them in the wind simulator!) Was surprised at how many things we see, do and play about with. The shark tank was very cool! :) Would've loved to see some turtles, but this is the only 'bad' point!

We had a fun hour and a half in the aquarium on a very busy day. There is a good variety of animals and plenty of different things to do, especially for younger children. Mine loved it and I would visit again!
