  • One of the best aquarium we have visited in europe. Plenty to see and displayed very well. The glass to the aquariums is kept very clean despite the many visitors. Book on line to prevent queuing...  more »
  • A well organised aquarium some distance from the town . Lots of exhibits in English as well as French . Plenty of toilet facilities and buggy / wheelchair friendly . Very interactive with touch pools....  more »

  • Fairly interesting aquarium, but not as much to see as I expected. Each exhibit section has its own theme and signed information is provided in both French and English, which allows visitors who do not speak the language to gain understanding of the species displayed. They also have a submarine simulation that takes you 'under the sea' which is a bit of a novelty but still fun, especially for kids. If you're in the area, it is worth a visit. Admission price is not too bad either
  • A nice aquarium but smaller than I expected. It was also very crowded. The rides were nice. But after 2/3 hours you have seen all there is. And that is a short period for a pretty high entrance fee. But the kids enjoyed and we as adults did as well. I saw some animals I have never seen before.
