This aquarium is good for families and and kids. It's a small place with limited displays. Also not very pocket friendly.

Took my twin 5 year grand daughters here last month, our 2nd visit they love it racing from tank to tank trying to spot the fish especially the zebra fish Nemo and now of course Dory. Reasonable snack bar food a bit basic.

Brochure makes it look bigger than it really is. They have a good variety of species from around the world and the aquarium is divided into regions. There was a little cafe inside along with a touch pond and souvenir shop when you exited.

With the rain pouring down we decided this would be a nice option. The displays were well marked with some English. Lots of children. Healthy looking tanks, I have visited a lot of aquariums and this one was nice.

I went to this aquarium with my 3 nieces and we loved it. Coming from St Etienne it is located just before entering Lyon and therefore no traffic jam to fear. A large variety of fishes - salt & fresh water species, even a tiger...More
