Beautiful array of sea creatures and well worth the visit. Definitely recommend for families as the price of entry is cheap and afterwards you can have a lovely swim at Anse Vata beach.

All the tour is done in the dark, so you have to be careful not to trip over seating in the rooms. Big wall-size tanks with plenty of information. Interesting displays and sea creatures including the Nautilis.
We stopped in Noumea for a few hours off a P&O cruise. This tour we did took in the Aquarium and a short tour of the sights including a couple of elevated points for a good photo opportunity.
Didnt realise Noumea had quite a military history and would be great for enthusiasts. I always had in mind that Noumea was a nice tropical paradise, but certainly would have been disappointed if I had of booked it for a holiday location - town and surraounds is delapidated.

Excellent displays of fish and corals of all shapes and sizes, even a fast moving crown of thorns. Huge wall tanks showcased many different species of fish. And there was plenty of comfortable seating for you to sit back and marvel at the amazing array of fish.
Smaller tanks focussed a different types of fish and corals.
A pitch black room housed the florescent corals; be prepared for total blackout.
The aquarium is well laid out, and signposted. Captions and explanations are in French and English.
Seniors discount applies, but only local currency is accepted.

This is a very impressive aquarium, with several large tanks packed with reef fish and lots of other displays, including nautilus and banded sea snakes. Entry is very reasonable and there is a discount for seniors.
