What people are saying about Lyon

After the inconvenience of entering the counter (minus one star) you queue to have your ticket already purchased validated when it would suffice to have it validated, it would be much more efficient and avoid the inconvenience. Otherwise the show is guaranteed, the reconstituted microcosms, the beauties of the seas parading before your eyes, certainly a bit expensive for poor families, but it's worth it, you'll be amazed.

It's out of town too bad and at the exit of the aquarium no signage to leave by transport to the center ..... A car park just in front for cars Otherwise my 12 year old son loved the aquarium .. the team is smiling and available. The must at the end we can caress rays, sea cucumbers and starfish

It was a good experience, but we expected more from the species and the aquarium.

Very nice experience. Noemie, received us very well. To do

Very good group activity enjoyed by the whole family
