Not a very extensive aquarium but that is reflected in the admission price. Still has interesting well designed tanks and a well stocked hands on touching display. Good value and keeps the kid happy. Would have appreciated more English language signage and info.

Excellent facility and beautifully laid out. We spent over an hour appreciating the exhibits and details but could easily have spent half a day.

We visited the town as staying close by at a campsite. What a wonderful, picturesque town. Our three children loved exploring the different sea life and relished the opportunity to get up close touching and discussing the different types of sea creatures. Friendly service, good...More

All of the signs are in French but a lovely little museum, nice little area to pick up hermit crabs and starfish etc. Definitely worth the few euros entry charge.

Interesting little aquarium in a former marine biology station. Not as commercial as most aquariums but much cheaper admission. Highlights were some cool little squids and getting to touch anemones (sticky!). Commentary is all in French. Well worth a visit, our kid loved it.

This is both an aquarium and a museum, actually part of the oldest biological station in Europe, and probably in the world, dating back to 1859. Surrounding the gift shop there is a complete history of the station, telling about famous scientists and their achievements....More

We visited here with two young children on a rainy day. The parking was easy and the place wasn't too busy. The children were free to get in and it was only €10 for two adults. There were some good things for the children, like...More

Visited with the kids, small marinarium, quite nice with younger kids. Several large aquariums, many microscope showing things, a guided visite of the infiniment petit, very moderate price, nice on a rainy day.

I'll be honest, I went into the marinarium hoping to see a ceolacanth, as illustrated on the poster outside. Obviously that was highly unlikely and in fact this part of the exhibition consisted of some excellent photos and fact boards. However, it was raining outside,...More
