The exhibits are information and interesting. The staff are rude, but the place is well done. The best part is the mermaid show, so time your visit to see the mermaid. We have not seen anything like it elsewhere. Skip the restaurant.

Visited in August during a holiday to Paris. The aquarium is located close to the Eiffel Tower so was easy to get to and find once there. The aquarium has a good number of beautifully presented exhibits to justify the price and had a number...More

This place is the worst! A staff member tried to charge our 2 year old daughter entry even after we clearly told her them she was under 3. Then they were so rude to us and caused a scene when we asked for our daughter's...More

I've been there a few times with my family and I've always had fun. The best attraction for the kids is the open tank where they can feed and touch the big red fishes.

This is not a world class aquarium! But it definitely a fine one. If your kids enjoy aquariums it is pretty good. We had the Museum Pass which included admission. It does not take long, an hour at most. It is well air conditioned which...More

There was the most incredible selection of fish, coral, jellyfish, lobsters and anemones. Absolutely amazing. It took us around 2 hrs as we spent a lot of time just sitting and watching. Some real hidden gems in some of the tiny creatures. We didn’t eat...More

nice aquarium, not very big, a visit takes about one hour. The exposition is focussed around one large central tank. I especially liked the hammerhead sharks. Some nice species in the smaller tanks around it. A cool escape from the hot city :-)

This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive
Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National
museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury
and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most
famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical
