My grand-children [2&4 years old] enjoyed it, whilst Granny & Grandpa went to the Musee des Beaux-Arts - also worth a visit. As well as live fish, there was a lot else on exhibition.

We really enjoyed this aquarium and so did our 2-kids. They had a wonderful collection of fish and stuffed animals (taxidermy.). It is also very reasonably priced at 10€ for all four of us. There is also a small garden on the back.

We had a great day in the Museum, traveling with 3 children, (2 teenagers) it is not easy to find something which is interesting for all. But the huge amount of aquarium's made it an interesting day. All aquariums were clean and interesting to watch

Go just to see the Brazilian Bat fish. Amazingly strange. The other fish were good but this was the best. Really enjoyed this aquarium as you could easily see all the fish in the eye level small tanks on the walls.
