We thoroughly enjoyed this aquarium but it is quite small so an hour is probably the most time you could spend here

From the outside the entrance looks very small but once inside the area opens out to quite a large exhibition of fish from all over the world. A great place to while away an hour or two especially if its raining.

A nice little place, good exhibitions. Not the biggest aquarium but nicely set out. Amused the 5 year old - also had a special 'pokemon' and 'Dory'. Watch out, the gift shop is expensive

Thank you for your very nice comments. Aquarium du Limousin is an association, an animal shelter, and lives only thanks to the visitors' entrances.
