A must if you are with children. Can be visited together with the papillon garden (next to it). The collection is quite modest but nicely presented with educational material.

We did not have children with us, but there was a school group at the aquarium when we were there and they were fascinated. Excellent collect of marine life including a live alligator that was found in the Paris sewers.

So long as you go into the place with the mind set you can't kill a day here you'll be fine. No aquarium is ever that big! Having said that we got almost 2 hours with 2 under 3s. The exhibits are clean and vibrant...More
