Aquarium La Rochelle reviews
The visit was incredibly short and lackluster for the price, but much worse right now is that there were zero measures taken for covid. They let way too many people in, even though we had a timeslot..... more »

Great place to visit, good value for money. We spent hours here and visiting in january the place was empty. The upside jellyfish were our favourite.
What an excellent aquarium. It's really well laid out with great exhibits and there is loads to look at and there is so much more in there than I thought there would be. The sharks and turtles were amazing to see and my 2 year old nephew loved it, well worth a visit especially for young kids. It wasn't too expensive either at €16 each (not sure about kids). You can pay €19 and get an audio guide but there is no need because there are signs in English and French explaining what the exhibits are.
