  • Couldn’t visit as it was temporarily closed due to COVID restrictions. Was hoping to get to see some of the beautiful sea creatures but alas, Covid said not now

  • Wonderful display of marine life. However, little attention for sustainability topics, missed opportunity.

  • Great place to visit, good value for money. We spent hours here and visiting in january the place was empty. The upside jellyfish were our favourite.
  • What an excellent aquarium. It's really well laid out with great exhibits and there is loads to look at and there is so much more in there than I thought there would be. The sharks and turtles were amazing to see and my 2 year old nephew loved it, well worth a visit especially for young kids. It wasn't too expensive either at €16 each (not sure about kids). You can pay €19 and get an audio guide but there is no need because there are signs in English and French explaining what the exhibits are.
