About the AquariumIf there are a few advantages in a rainy and wintery Paris, they are the ability to visit places that one wouldn't otherwise get to if the sun was out and shining. Paris's Aquarium (L'Aquarium de Paris), located in the Jardins du Trocadéro, houses thousands of aquatic creators from all over the world, different species, sizes, colors, that one can see through the clear glass.
The Aquarium, made of 60 separate aquariums, was established to showcase the underwater world of different tropical countries. Today you can find over 5,000 creators here, of 350 different species. In the aquariums there is a division by species and geographical origins.
For children, this is an exciting experience, and as for adults, this is a pretty relaxed attraction. One of the most fascinating attractions here is the shark tank. Another attraction is the petting tank, where children (and parents) are welcome to put their hands in and pet the colorful fish that are swimming. In addition there are all kids of shows here, like pirate doll shows, and screenings of nature movies and art activities.
