Aquarium de Paris

The Paris Aquarium is not only Europe's oldest aquarium (it was built in 1867), for years it was also Europe's largest. Housed in the center of the city, on the quarries where Napoleon would house his cavalry, this institution has been part of the fabric of Parisian life for more than a century.

This institution embodies the late 19th century fascination with the spectacular. Alongside bearded ladies and camera obscuras, aqua vivariums were all the rage. With 4 million liters of water, and 10,000 fish from around the world, there's plenty to keep you and your family entertained here for hours on end.

Exhibits seem quite old fashioned compared to more modern aquariums. The touch zone for the children was very badly managed (no staff) and people were hitting and throwing the fish. All the written signs (Peppa Pig) were in French with no other translations. The oral commentary made at feeding times for example were all given only in French. Really not up to the standards of modern aquariums in other cities. Eating facilities were limited. You could pay for a full buffet lunch and there was no other option. Not great for children.

My kids were extremely happy running everywhere to discover all the different fishes. The show was really sweet and very well presented.
