Star Star Star Star Star - A great family experience at the Paris Aquarium
Written by JOSETTE PEREZ ARTAZA, 13-04-2024

Good organization and distribution of aquariums; diversity of species, as well as quality shows, much appreciated by our grandchildren aged 3 and 6. Friendly, caring and competent staff. We spent a total of 3 hours on the premises, taking our time and returning to the different aquariums (for the pleasure of the children's eyes); by court quite playful. It's a pity there's no senior rate (we paid a total of 90eur for 2 seniors and 2 children!).

Star Star Star Star Star - Great for ages 2 to 9
Written by L G, 17-01-2024

With the Familin Paris tickets, everything went smoothly. The 'Duo' package is very interesting. For children between 2 and 9 years old, the Aquarium de Paris is great, for older children it depends on their interest, what they'd like to see and do; the Aquarium is great if you take the time to look and think. If you take it for a stroll, you may be disappointed. The tank of big fish, sharks and other fish is impressive, and you get different perspectives as you walk around the Aquarium. The kids loved the opportunity to touch the fish and the mermaid show. The jellyfish room is impressive, but its interest could be a function of whether you were at the beach and someone or you were stung.

I regret going to the Paris Aquarium with two of my granddaughters. I felt enclosed, the ceiling is very low. The water was murky and we couldn't see the fish very well. We didn't like the Marsupilami "show". What's it got to do with anything? The value for money is not there. I certainly wouldn't recommend this visit.

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.

Star Star Star Star Star - 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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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...

The atmosphere is magical for children and adults alike, thanks to the colors and diversity of the animals on display.

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!
