The aquarium and zoological museum are very interesting and both have a good collection. The section all about coral is very interesting. But as a university museum, it is much more of an old school academic museum than a modern hands on experience, so may...More

Went to see the shark. It was tiny and I thought missing in action until others informed me that I had simply turned my head in the wrong direction when I passed the open tank.

We spent a nice afternoon at the aquarium on a rainy day and very much enjoyed the aquarium and zoological museum. My young daughter, who loves all things animal, had the best time naming all the creatures and then learning the names in French.
