Although the entrance price is high, it is a nice place to go to with children. The diversity in fish, snakes and reptiles is large enough, but it can be too busy in some places, so you have to wait for a bit.
Staff is friendly and helpful. A nice touch is that the information on the signs is in French and English.
There's a small restaurant that sells food and drinks, the quality of the food is mediocre, so it's too expensive. On the way out there's a souvenir shop were you can find the usual stuff that's on sale in almost every zoo.
If you don't know what to do on a rainy day and have kids, a visit certainly will be worthwile.

Visited the aquarium for the first time yesterday with my parents and my 4 year old. All signage have English translations. Fish are all cold water or tropical no marine fish what so ever. Disturbing to see a tank full of silver fish being kept with pearch and pike. A lot of injured fish. Also reptiles are poorly kept. Cages are too small and some of the reptiles are seriously under weight.

Decided to go on a wet morning. Dubious after reading several negative reviews, but really glad we went. Our three year old daughter loved looking at all the fish as well as all the snakes and reptiles. Down side is that the cafe isn't worth visiting! But there are lots of nice places to eat in le bugue itself. Definitely worth a visit for a couple of hours. Under 4's free entry.

The price of this attraction prices it at a similar level to much larger places like the Blue Planet in England and that's where it falls down. Taken in isolation and at a reduced price, this would be a place worth visiting if you had a hour to spend with a young family, but older children will be less impressed, as will those paying just under 50 euros for a family of four.

Great little aquarium for the region. It is well done, clean and interesting. We loved the Anaconda, good selection of lizards and 2 big pythons. The aquarium is not huge but it is worth a visit.
