We came to visit the building mainly, but did enjoy the aquarium a lot. The incredibly coloured shrimp at the entry where the highlight for me

Way cheaper than cineaqua. Kids loved it. Quiet. Description only in french but that doesnt make visit less pleasant.

Nice surprice! The exotic aquarium has interesting species and beautiful aquaries. Also cheap, and definately good value for money. The setting in the Palace of Porte Doree is amazing. We and our kids (14, 17, 20) all enjoyed it.

Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise
lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and
impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small
parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy
Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois
de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on
its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to
this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make
