Part of the Odysseum shopping centre, this aquarium recreates 15 aquatic environments, from polar waters to tropical forests. Imaginative tanks include an Ocean Balcony, where you stare down over submarine cliffs patrolled by sharks and rays, and a huge Amphitheatre, the largest covered tank in France, with 1.8 million litres of seawater. Kids will also love the interactive displays, such as a simulated cargo ship battling through stormy seas. Take tram 1 to the Odysseum station Place de France.

All up there are 400 species here, and up to 12 events (eg feedings) each day.
