Oceanopolis, Brest Reviews

  • We went outside school holidays so it was quiet and we could see all the displays free of crowds. Very impressive aquarium, particularly the tropical zone.

  • Really good aquarium in a very nice mariner town and reasonable priced entrance. Look out for discounts with tourists brochures in the area. The place is split into ecological zones with large viewing tanks with plenty to see (not sea ūüėč) including an area where you are encouraged to pick up the various crustasions you find in rock pools and low tide. There are a few places to get some food but with all places like this the prices are way over priced so would definitely recommend you bring a picnic. As a non french speaker you may find not many people speak French but the staff are friendly though. All in all well worth a visit if near the area.

  • Nice exhibits, stunning specimen. Still not sure how they do it. Educational information everywhere

  • The museum is nice and impressive but we were a bit dissapointed with the variety of animals that is there. I guess we were expecting to see more. It is worth knowing that they offer reduced prices on certain dates so it is worth checking their website. We got our tickets for 16 euros each instead of the usual 21 euros

  • Good value for money. My 16 year old twins really enjoyed it
