This place is an absolute bore. The aquariums are uninteresting and so is the rest of the place. The only slightly interesting thing was the WR googles. Be aware that this is not an aquarium with a lot of fish but a museum.

An interesting view of life in a fishing village with some interesting exhibits. Kids will love the aquarium especially the floor level tank where touching is encouraged - and the Rae are very friendly!!

None of the three people on the desk spoke English. Had 2 floors about the city by the sea and had a very little aquarium of fish. €7.50!! We were in and out in about an hour, maybe less!!

We'd missed our train to Rouen so went to the Museum. You are given a guide in English when you first enter which was useful. The first section was a bit dry - about shipbuilding - but there were some hands on exhibits which my...More
