Super disappointed I did not find it crazy. The big aquarium has been covered and is therefore less impressive. I went there several times and I was really disappointed. And 25? for the adult entrance is too much.

Written by Marie Pavalloni, on 04-01-2022

I do not recommend this activity because the aquarium is poor in species and very poorly maintained. Too many tanks are empty. It is undignified for the aquarium of the capital.

Great moment
Written by Hajar SADAOUI, on 20-12-2021

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. The only drawback is that access with a stroller is complicated because there is no elevator outside and the one in the aquarium to reach the hall was out of order.

Very good moment with my little boy of three and a half years He discovered in movement what he was looking at in books until then and his joy was intense. Beautiful scenography moreover. He complained a little about the absence of whales, I told him that it was a little complicated to install !!!!

uninteresting
Written by Martine POMMIER, on 10-11-2021

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 at the surface). 3. we will not recommend this offer

Interesting but too many people.
Written by Guillaume Saby, on 08-11-2021

We had a reservation for three people on Sunday 31 October at 3:30 pm. The aquarium itself is really nice with a lot 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 everybody can come back at any time. At the same time for an aquarium to be squeezed like in a sardine can...

Too many people and not adapted for strollers
Written by Armaud Gaydon, 06-11-2021

It was very crowded when we went there on Monday 1/11/2021, we had to queue in front of every window and it was hard to move around. It was almost anxiety-provoking. Place not adapted at all for the strollers, we had to carry it several times (notably at the entrance) We will not go back there!

a magical underwater world with dry feet.
Written by Maryse LEGHLID, on 19-08-2021

The atmosphere is magical for both children and adults, with the colors and the diversity of the animals presented. A small drawback is the absence of a document distributed at the entrance that allows you to visit the aquarium in its entirety without losing the thread of the visit. Another drawback: the information on the contents of each aquarium is not indicated.

A great family visit!
Written by Charles Bernet, on 15-07-2021

We booked the 6:30pm slot on a Saturday not realizing that the aquarium closed at 7pm. Everyone seemed surprised by the existence of this slot but let us in thinking that we were early for the 7pm nocturne! In the end, it was magical since we were alone between 2 slots (for the jellyfish and the sharks it was really worth it). We even did the circuit a second 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 pity for those who only go at night. In short, a nice opportunity and a good time with the family

Written by Charlotte Spadotto, on 13-11-2020

I went with my children (11 and 8 years old) during the All Saints' Day vacations. The little one was delighted because she saw a mermaid, for my part 2 min of show.... It's class!!! The children appreciated to be able to caress the fish. The visit lasts 1 hour, not more as I saw in other reviews. This aquarium is very good for little ones, not really interesting for older kids. I strongly advise against the restaurant !!!!!

Expensive, crowded, and siren animation too short
Written by Anna , on 30-10-2020

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. The aquarium on this Sunday morning was full to bursting, honestly it was absolutely to avoid in this period of pandemic but impossible to turn back for the children.

Written by laetitia savoye, on 26-10-2020

Thanks to the family offer, we were able to escape for a day to the aquarium of Paris. We had a great time and we were amazed by all these little wonders. Our visit lasted much longer than the others, since my 8 year old son didn't want to leave the petting pool anymore. It's a great idea to have done this. ???? The sharks, jellyfish, nemo etc... were a treat. This day, we also had the chance to attend Simon's show, or how to learn while having fun.

Well, that's just fine. The visit is short, in one hour if you take the time, it's over. The shark tunnel is not a tunnel at all, it's average. The only positive point is the basin where you can stroke the fish, it is very nice. We go there once but we don't go back.

Written by Marie Christine Fromont, on 30-08-2020

The aquarium is very outdated, the animations are very low-end ... 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 can expect in a city like Paris. I would not recommend this activity to anyone. The small tropical aquarium of the Porte Dorée is more fun. Too bad.

Very nice discovery in the heart of Paris. The children (2, 3 and 5 years old) were amazed. The price is a bit high but it's understandable considering the location and the infrastructure. We had the chance to do this visit at 1:30 pm when it was not too crowded which greatly contributed to the success of this experience.
