- Nice to do in case of rain
Written by Pauline , on 09-05-2023
It's a pity not to have a map on arrival with the different rooms and shows, 1 explanation of the current collab with "les lapins crétins" and possibly 1 treasure hunt to make the visit more attractive to children with 1 additional educational intertitles.
- Disappointing and expensive

The 3R offer does not meet expectations with a 5 year old child I will not recommend
- A must-do
Written by CESARINE NOËL-ORHON, 11-04-2023
We really enjoyed this visit. The reception is at the top, a small representation-sensitization with the environment of quality was proposed to the children, and the fact of being able to caress the carps allows the children to become familiar with this environment and to want afterwards to protect it.
- Magnificent aquarium

We really enjoyed this beautiful aquarium in the center of Paris. The jellyfish are beautiful
- A magnificent aquarium with potential for development
Written by Alexandra , on 24-03-2023
The aquarium is beautiful, the reception is pleasant. It's a pity that the café restaurant was closed. I also wonder about the prices of the playground which is under construction in front of the aquarium. The entrance tickets are still quite expensive + the souvenir store that you have to pass through to get out (even if the products sold are of good quality and affordable prices) + the games area... All this gives a feeling that we want to empty our pockets. Too bad. Here are some ideas: put in a better visibility the place for the waste in order to raise awareness about the pollution of the seas. It is always impressive to see what you find there. On the other hand, for small children the visit can seem a bit monotonous. They would be delighted to run around and play with the images of the interactive projection for example. I wish you good luck with the work!
- very nice visit

Very diverse Great forum on jellyfish Rabbits and Cretins activity well in the spirit but too offbeat
Written by Sandra B, on 05-03-2023
It's easy to book online. The advantage of reserving a slot is that we're not on top of each other. I went with my 2 children aged 5 and 8. I paid 58 euros. Honestly, I was very disappointed by the lack of variety in the sea animals. The "Raving Rabbids" exhibit was more than a little lame and didn't provide the fun I was hoping for. For me, the price was not at all worth the quality of the service.
- A beautiful outing

Written by Mallory on 22-02-2023
For a city like Paris, I expected better. The tour was quick, so not great in terms of value for money. An outing that keeps the kids busy in case of bad weather but not essential otherwise. The + of the visit was the pond with the carps that the children can touch. Easy booking on familinparis with discount, I recommend booking through this site!
- Nice discovery

Very nice outing that our 2 twins of 4 years old appreciated a lot. On the other hand a lot of people especially at the 2 shows.
- A little disappointed
Written by Linaelle Morisset, on 15-11-2022
It's great to see the children's sense of wonder, but the aquariums are a little repetitive. The sharks are only visible in two large windows. For Paris's notoriety, this activity is a little light. We're paying for the Trocadero's setting, but not for the semplendence of the aquariums.
- Nice visit but rather quick so a bit expensive
Written by Magali Bataillé, on 13-11-2022
Immersive visit in the marine world that delights young and old alike, but quite fast
- Immersive, educational and beautiful.
Written by Nicole, on 22-08-2022
No difficulty in booking or on site. The "fun" activities were not very attractive (either for adults or for the young child (3 years 1/2) who accompanied us). The aquariums (presentation, diversity, explanations) were very pleasant and interesting to observe. The signposted route and overall design meant that we didn't step on any toes, and access was easy. Not for everyone.
- A great birthday present for our 5-year-old grandson.
Written by Aline Sabourdy , 12-08-2022
No waiting on arrival. The fish, aquarium and mermaid are sublime. The staff are very welcoming, friendly and available. Very clean toilets. Everything you need to have a good time, including seating facilities for those who need it along the entire course. We had to change our tickets because there was no train to come and the person on the phone to make the change was very kind and understanding of our difficulties. We recommend this activity and we've shared the good times on Facebook. The only regret is that my husband is blind and there's no audio guide.
- Very beautiful and interesting.

No problem at all. The medusary is very rich. I would have liked to have seen larger sharks.

Great time with my son. We were amazed by the countless species present. There is really something for everyone. The carp petting pool was just sensational. Only drawback, the access in stroller is complicated because no elevator outside and the one of the aquarium to join the hall was out of order.

A very good time with my three-and-a-half-year-old son. he discovered in motion what he had been looking at in books until then, and his joy was intense. Beautiful scenography too. He complained a little about the absence of whales, to which I replied that it was a bit complicated to install !!!!

1. Little diversity in the presentation of flora and fauna, 2. Serious breach of safety standards during the small show of the Mermaid, room 10: too small, too many people accepted, about 4 people sitting on the floor / m², jostling and irritation or even insults from some, performance of the mermaid too limited and not enough to be seen by children (apparently little breath so forced to go up often to catch his breath on the surface). 3. we will not recommend this offer

Written by Guillaume Saby, on 08-11-2021
We had a reservation for three people on Sunday October 31 at 3.30pm. The aquarium itself is really nice, with lots of species to discover, but unfortunately the crowds and too many people at the same time spoiled our visit. Why ask for a visit time when anyone can come in at any time? At the same time, for an aquarium to be squeezed in like a sardine can...
- Too crowded and not suitable for strollers
Written by Armaud Gaydon, 06-11-2021
Enormously crowded when we went on Monday 1/11/2021, we had to queue in front of every window and had trouble getting around. It was almost anxiogenic. Place not adapted at all for the strollers, we had to carry it several times (notably at the entrance) We will not return there!

Written by Maryse LEGHLID, on 19-08-2021
The atmosphere is magical for children and adults alike, thanks to the colors and diversity of the animals on display. One small drawback is the absence of a document handed out at the entrance, enabling visitors to explore the aquarium in its entirety without losing the thread of their visit. Another drawback is the lack of information on the contents of each aquarium.

- A great family visit!
Written by Charles Bernet, on 15-07-2021
We booked the 6.30pm slot on a Saturday without realizing that the aquarium closed at 7pm. Everyone seemed surprised by the existence of this slot, but let us in thinking we were early for the 7pm nocturne! In the end, it was magical, as we were alone between 2 slots (for jellyfish and sharks, it was really worth it). We even did the circuit a 2nd time (for our son, who had fallen asleep). On the other hand, we realized that some of the pools were no longer lit, which is a shame for those who only go at night. In short, a great opportunity and a good time for all the family!

I went with my children (aged 11 and 8) during the All Saints' Day vacations. The little one was delighted because she saw a mermaid, and I enjoyed the 2-minute show.... It's class!!! The children enjoyed stroking the fish. The visit lasts 1h, not more as I've seen in other reviews. This aquarium is great for toddlers, not really interesting for older children. I strongly advise against the restaurant !!!!!

The entrance tickets are not given, the wait is long before being able to enter the site. The animation with the mermaid lasts 5 minutes, the children leave frustrated.

Thanks to our family offer, we were able to spend a day at the Paris Aquarium. We had a great time and were amazed by all the little wonders. Our visit lasted much longer than the others, as my 8-year-old son never wanted to leave the petting pool. It was a great idea to do this. ???? The sharks, jellyfish, nemo etc... were a real treat. On this day, we were also lucky enough to attend Simon's show, or how to learn while having fun.

Well, that's just fine. The visit is short, in one hour taking the time it is finished. The shark tunnel is absolutely not a tunnel, it's average. The only positive point is the basin where you can caress the fish, it is very nice. We go there once but we do not return.

- Huge disappointment
Written by Marie Christine Fromont, on 30-08-2020
The aquarium is very outdated, and the animations are very downmarket ... Big disappointment, but thanks for the reduced price, of course .... The booking went very well, especially when I asked for a change of date. But I thought the aquarium was more modern. The museography sucks, the show is below what you'd expect in a city like Paris. I wouldn't recommend this activity to anyone. The little tropical aquarium at the Porte Dorée is more fun. Too bad, though.

A wonderful discovery in the heart of Paris. The children (2, 3 and 5) were amazed. The price is a bit high, but understandable given the location and infrastructure. We were lucky enough to take the tour at 1:30 pm when it wasn't too crowded, which greatly contributed to the success of the experience.
