Immerse yourself in an underwater world, where you can relax and forget about everything else - whilst still being in the Trocadero Gardens in the heart of Paris, and enjoying stunning views of the Eiffel Tower.

As you will see, the aquarium's many interactive displays will make this a magical day out for all the family. 

Come and explore the French coastline, during an animated voyage along the coasts of France and those of its overseas territories. You're sure to be amazed by the large panel which documents some 450 different species of fish. So leave the Trocadero Gardens far behind you, take a deep breath, and dive into this magical underwater experience.

Over an area of 3 500m2, you will be surrounded by more than 10 000 fish and invertebrates in 43 different tanks. As well as some 500 specimens of coral, 2 cinemas and the 20 tonnes of salt that are needed to replenish the saltwater in the tanks, you will also see the largest aquarium in France. With its 3 000 000 litres of water, the shark tank is unrivalled by any other French aquarium. Measuring 9.60 metres tall and 33 metres long, it houses 4 species: nursing sharks, blacktip sharks, grey sharks and zebra sharks; as well as many tropical fish. 

The aquarium offers a memorable and action-packed day, full of fun and informative activities, which are regularly updated, workshops (for children) and shows. 

In 2019, the Aquarium of Paris is launching its Medusarium, a real scientific and technical achievement. You will discover one of the world's first collections of jellyfish in a dedicated area composed of 24 different pools. 

This activity will be an unforgettable experience for young and old alike.
