At some point in your visit -- which shouldn't take you much more than an hour -- you realize you're circling the same shark tank all the time. We went on a cool, cloudy Saturday, and arrived at 4:30 PM to find a line it took us an hour to get through. If my son hadn't had his heart set... More

Nice variety of fish even the most exotic ones are there. Not a long queue at all. It took us less than 20 minutes to enter. The kids loved it since its not very bog and very Paris cEntral next to Eiffel tower.

This is the first aquarium i visit so i cant compare to other ones. The ambiance is well designed to submerge you in the relaxing mood. The collection of jellyfish. It doesnt have extraordinary animals such as big sharks or whales.

Too expensive, too short visit. Families with very young kids were having fun. Still I would only go once with my kids, mostly for the video shows, and then never again.

This is quite expensive attraction, but if you visit Eiffel tower and outside is not so warm, then kids will appreciate this visit also. Inside there is not so much to see except for jelly fish tanks and one big octopus - the rest is usual stuff as in other aquariums. In the end is open tank where anybody has... More

We had à terrible expérience. We tried to use the McDonald's pass as explain in the other comments, it was impossible. It's a total fraud. Then we still did the visit (kids wanted to visit once we entered), the place is old, dirty nothing spectacular or worth it. Lastly the staff is impolite, everything to make you spend a bad... More

This aquarium is quite nice although it doesn't have the largest range of fish and other sea creatures. The jellyfish section is rather lovely and the aquarium does have both French and English signage on most exhibits. The aquarium is nice, warm and the perfect place to escape the cold for a couple of hours during the winter.

I went there with my wife and 2 year ild daughter, and to have this aquarium in the center if Paris is amazing. It's not the. best in the world but definitely worth the trip for kids in a cold January!

This is nearby Eiffel tower and pretty handy to spend few hours with kids. Shark tank is cool. There is also a section where kids can touch fishes - which my kids loved. Tickets are a bit expensive but worth it.

We stopped here because (a) we have a kid who needed a kid thing to do, and (b) it was cold outside and we needed to get warm for a bit. The place served its purpose, and the exhibitions are OK. But it's far from being a great aquarium, and parts of it are even a bit sad. The overall... More

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher, florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings are small art galleries and homes of historical significance. With a rich legacy from 19th century politics, art, and architecture, you can’t help but be reminded of the belle époque, the Universal Exhibitions and the nobility that have frequented and shaped these streets.
