“Surprised....very cool”
Reviewed 4 October 2013 via mobile

Was there in July. The entrance made me feel like I was at the aquarium on Jenkinsons in Manasquan, NJ, but nice in side they had numerous large tanks. It was very cool and a good stop if you don't feel like waiting around the Eiffel Tower

“one of the poorest I've seen”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

I was dissapointed. there were big queues, only little children with parents was visiting this place (like nowhere else). price was too big for this attraction. it was small, much more worser than aquarium in montpellier or london. toilet was tiny with huge queue. there was a problem to see anything because of crowd everywhere. nobody guard people to not use flash.

“Small but Fascinating!”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

This is quite a small Aquarium, but very well maintained and clean. Fascinating creatures and large tanks that you could sit a watch all day long! Would be a great detour for kids, and also has a small restaurant and shop. They also have a 'petting' pool with Koi Carps which is also pretty fun. For around 19 euro it is slightly expensive but not out of the ordinary price range for attractions like this. Highly recommended!

“Welcome escape from the heat.”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

We decided to go in here one afternoon by chance during a day of sightseeing on foot, during a particularly hot spell of weather. I was feeling very hot and weary of all the walking round, so the option of spending a couple of hours out of the sun was very inviting. We didn't have to queue and it was fairly quiet even though it was a Friday. The aquarium was very cool and we didn't notice any smells as per some of the less favourable trip advisor reviews. We enjoyed looking at all the displays, but as some other reviewers have said, there was not as much to see as we expected and we soon saw everything. Determined to get our money's worth, we took our seats in the cinema to watch one of the ocean based nature films on offer. I fell fast asleep for a good half hour or so, while my partner watched the film intently. I felt so much better after my power nap, I had a good chance to really cool down and felt re-energised for more sightseeing. We stopped at the cafe for a quick drink & shared a piece of cake, which was very pricey on top of the entrance fee. Note: prior to our visit we dined at le Bistro le Champs de Mars and next to the W.C's there are a stack of leaflets including some vouchers for 5 euros off the entry fee to various attractions including the aquarium, so these are well worth having but pick up a voucher for each person, otherwise it's an expensive visit.

“small aquarium, good for young kids”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

I took a 2 year old boy to this aquarium for an afternoon visit. He was quite entertained by seeing all the fish and sharks swim around him. The huge tanks made for easy viewing, and very impressive to a small child! The touch pool was also a hit, and he enjoyed "waving" at the goldfish swimming around him. Overall, a nice way to spend an afternoon in Paris with a young child. A good way to beat the heat!
