    The aquarium is worth the detour, it is an interesting activity, especially if you have children. This keeps them busy for about an hour. On the other hand, the house of Christopher Columbus… no comment… 2 minutes of visit in a 50m2 and that's it… activity which should be free in my opinion.

    Overall beautiful place to visit Space although shark poor in decoration as well as the dolphin space direction of the visit a little complicated (nearly did not see the jellyfish) prohibited touch corner (damage) top tropical corner on the other hand disappointed that the French language is in no way present in all the activities (sea museum, aquarium, etc.) as well as the people who welcome you speak our language very little. For Christophe Colon's house, very disappointed with the value for money, it's expensive to visit 2 rooms and a garden

    The aquarium itself is really impressively well made and a complete success, especially with children. The additional offers, on the other hand (food, snacks, etc.) are a senseless waste of money, especially since the bistro on the course only offers fast food in the lowest category. Unfortunately, visiting the Columbus House was also pretty much worthless as there is almost nothing to see and it is further away in the old town.
