Great place to take your children at least once. Weekends you will find for sure a huge queue. So you better go from Mon-Fri.

This is about 25 minutes out on the tram and the Odysseum park a bit child/burger and chips orientated, but the Aquarium is great. It is not huge but so well arranged and appointed.

This aquarium is really a nice day out. They have a beautiful collection and the tour has really been made interesting for all ages. They keep doing new things so you can actually go there more than once in the year.

You can see impressive sealife from all over the world with special effects. It is well worth visiting it.

Excellent value for euro 15.00. Ingenious utilisation of an old ship and an old submarine! Very effective explanation of the various weathers at sea!

Great aquarium with lots to see and do and even a simulated trip on the high season which my kids loved to bits. Even better it being so quiet thanks to French school kids having gone back

I planned to send my husband there with our 6 year old and do some shopping but changed my mind and joined them. I did not regret it, the place features good choice of sea creatures and entertainment such as an imitation of a ship bridge during storm. We all had great fun!
