We loved the Aquarium at La Rochelle, France. The displays were absolutely fantastic and very well cared for. Enjoyed the shark tank especially. We went out of school holiday time so there were no queues. Be careful during the holidays or high season when the wait to get in can be long. Still highly recommended.

we visited here on a wet bank holiday so it was very busy but it was still very enjoyable.

it entertained all of us, including a couple of teenagers. the range of fish, and size of the tanks were fantastic. we didn't bother paying for an audio guide, and as all the displays had English translations we managed fine

it took a good couple of hours to walk round so we thought it was good value.

my son who is at uni showed his student card and got a discount, and as the child age is up to 18, my daughter also got cheap entry.

gift shop wasn't overpriced, we didn't visit the cafe as that was expensive.

another plus is that it's open every day including Christmas day itself!

I have over the years visited many large aquariums and I can say that this was one of the better ones. Well laid out with good displays of marine life. A modern facility and well worth the time to visit.

We really enjoyed this new, modern and informative aquarium.
can imagine it would get really crowded in the summer months though, so best to visit at opening time rather than later.
