Both adults and children (even very young) will enjoy the aquarium. It features many different aquariums: in a first section visitors can discover life in different rivers of France, and then move to very exotic aquariums showing aquatic life in different environments : temperate waters, tropical waters, tropical seas. There is a huge tank for sharks.

Ok if you want to learn more on local fishes but nothing compare with the aquariums we used to visit in North America like the one in Toronto, Quebec City or Boston. Be good for young children. Best time to visit: Monday afternoon during school time.

Great display, but too small. Only there for a skant 2 hours and all in French so you cannot understand any of the information, even though their website gives an alternative of English.
