I loved the Disneyland experience the most and at the second place I loved the experience in the aquarium of Paris. The sea life is the most adorable think of Earth for me and the sea creatures at the aquarium looked like they are in perfect conditions for living.

It was fascinating for my 2 and a half year old daughter and for me too! Wonderful world of the seas, unfortunately in danger... Bravo also for the educational shows!

The atmosphere, the signposted tour, the explanatory panels... only :black_circle:️: the pseudo-Asian tables and stands that surround the aquarium entrance and hide it! It's not pretty!

The aquariums are beautiful and clean, but the explanations are not sufficient. You have to wait for the fish you want to find information on to appear on the screen. Your eyes are on the tablet rather than on the aquarium. The stand is not suitable. Classic signs like those at the entrance should be added to each aquarium...

L'univers des poissons: this museum provides information on the underwater world. Very interesting. I liked the Paris Aquarium.

If you're looking to do something offbeat in Paris, head over to the Paris Aquarium (also known as Cinéaqua). Built in 1867, it is one of the oldest aquariums in the world and is home to over 13,000 sea creatures that swim in 4 million liters of water. The attraction also features mermaid shows, an aquatic cinema, and a shark basin - all this, smack in the heart of Paris!

The tanks at the aquarium host life from both tropical regions, as well as those closer to home. For the latter, you'll get to see an entire section with carp, sturgeon, and roach in a recreation of the Seine River. There are also recreated versions of Tahiti and New Caledonia with vibrant-hued fish like angelfish, clownfish, and triggerfish jockey darting around corals. The highlight, however, has to be the sharks. There are four species of sharks that you can spot, bound to elicit nervous laughs and excited squeals from the audience.

There are also two large screens that show aquatic documentaries, a touch tank where you can stroke Koi fish, and live feeding demos to make it a magical day with your family.
