Parts of this aquarium were very good but my main complaint was that none of the 'residents' were described in English (or any other language than French). Frustrating to say the least !

Just like other people, we went to the aquarium on a rainy day. The fish tanks are all very clean and (mostly) not too small for the animal living in it. The shark and turtles were our favorite. During the visit, you have to go...More

To be fair, it's not only for rainy days, just very convenient. I didn't think this aquarium was as good as the one I recently visited in San Sebastián, but it's spread over several levels with seal, turtle and hammerhead shark displays of note. Worth...More

The aquarium itself is relatively good, with the usual suspects found within. The middle floor is unusual - with whale skeletons and local fishing-related artefacts present. Unfortunately for us they were all captioned in French - but I think we got the gist. However it's...More

Spent a couple of hours here wandering round. They have managed to pack a lot in with lots to see. The views from the top are spectacular. Only gripe was it cost 40 euros for 3 of us.

The Aquarium is a very nice place where you can spend a few hours with teens or young children. The shark tank is an ama view. Don't miss the snoring sea lions on the roof.

Small'ish but very good quality aquarium. Spot-on exhibitions. The only disappointment; nothing was in English, not even the explanation / presentation of the large tank. Other than that, an enjoyable couple of hours. (Maybe a discount should be applied for foreign visitors or invest in...More
