Had a great visit. Lots of great fish and so refreshing it wasn't just full of sharks and rays. The owners are true fish lovers. We chatted to one of them as we left and he was really kind and knowlegable about the city. Really...More

If you’re expecting the big huge fish - this is not a place for you. Overall though this place is a lovely collection from fish from across the world and if listening to the droning audio guide can take the visit in addition of 1hr...More

The first thing you need to know is that the public aquarium of Brussels sounds bigger than it is. For Americans who are used to large aquariums with dolphins, sharks, sea lions, and penguins, my message is: you're not going to find that in Brussels....More

This aquarium is definitely somewhere worth visiting. Not only were the fish terribly cute, but the audio guide was extremely informative- who knew that goldfish like spinach?!

It's very small and the so are all the exhibits. It wasn't terrible but certainly not impressive at all. Something to do with kids to get out of the rain.

This aquarium was more like a pet shop. While the aquarium gave lots of information about each type of fish,it did not have anything too interesting in it. I don't mean to be mean but I have to be honest and say it's not worth...More
