Public Aquarium Of Brussels Reviews & Ratings
It is a very cosy and peaceful place. The owner was so sweet and funny. he made us feel so welcome and gave us extra pointers about the awesome speculos in Brussels. I loved it! The aquarium is well maintained and very informative. They give a remote kind of thing in which you can listen about the different fishes and animals there. They have a wonderful gift shop too. We had lots of fun.
If ur an enthusiast of water life than this is the place to go. It's small but they know there stuff. It was boring for some people but like I said if u love fish than this is the place to go
It is informative every tank has in depth information. The maps were a bit inaccurate. Location needs a definite upgrade. Doesn't expect any large fish. I gave it a 3 because the location really needs a lot of work. Could also have some interactive things for kids. I would have loved to buy my daughter a gold fish or something at the end. The audio content is also available in English and it very well done
It doesn't look like much from the outside. I almost didn't go in but glad I did. The tanks we're clean, the fish were active, and the audio tour was great!
Lovely little aquarium. Though not big or impressive, it has 48 tanks with small fish (no sharks or sing rays there). However the commentary was very well done, with very interesting stories for each of the displays. The fish appear to be in a good way, with a large number of baby fish too. It cannot be compared to the London Aquarium so do not expect anything fancy, but I did learn quite a bit. I had never seen some of the species on display, and particularly some of the amphibious ones which were fascinating. Worth the detour if you are in Brussels with children.
