Wouldn’t recommend to people with no French. Excellent for the French but not for tourists who can’t speak it. Barely anything to see only all reading, very badly organised. Not worth the money atall

This is must visit place whether you know or don't know about the aquatic realm! Needless to say, it's a great place for the kids. A lot of information is available for curious minds. This aquarium is divided into three pavilions: Polar, Tropical and Brittany,...More
