CinéAqua Aquarium In Paris France

CinéAqua was originally called the Aquarium du Trocadero and has gone through a complete transformation, to become a completely new aquarium concept with state of the art audio-visual equipment.

After being closed for more than 20 years, when the new CinéAqua opened its doors once again, Paris could proudly say that it has yet again one of the biggest aquariums in all of Europe.

CinéAqua Aquarium In Paris France

This innovative aquarium combines marine life with multi-media installations and not only will you find it a first-class aquarium, but animation and music studios keep visitors entertained.

CineAqua also has three cinemas with over 25 different screens that are networked and managed by a single broadcast centre and can store over 500 hours of film at any one time.

On top of that, there are regular live performances in the Aquastudio with its unique facilities and a setting that is not available anywhere else in the world.  The Aquastudio provides a large window as a backdrop to the stage, which has a tank of exotic fish and it is 30ft wide and 26ft high and is the largest of its kind in the world. 

CineAqua is located in the 16th Arrondissement at the heart of Paris and is entirely underground. The entrance is located in the Jardins de Trocadéro, below the Palais Chaillot, across the River Seine from the Eiffel Tower and is indicated by the large glass pane that sweeps into the ground above the steps to the aquarium.

The visit will take you slowly down to around 19 metres underground and the whole aquarium visit will take around an hour and a half to two hours.  It will take you from the source of the River Seine and into its estuary, then the Channel and on to the Atlantic, then Mediterranean and around the coast of the French territories such as Polynesia and Guyana, which provide you with displays of the fish and other sea life in each area.

The aquarium holds over 40 million litres of water with around 400 different species of marine life and over 8000 creatures in total and the largest aquarium is nearly 10 metres deep and contains 3 million litres of water (3,000 tonnes) and 100 tonnes of salt.

The 11 metre tunnel will get you up close and face to face with stingrays and sharks of which there are over 20, and this can be quite an incredible experience for everyone.

The children can get to stroke carp and sturgeons in the touching pools, plus you can get to see the sharks being fed by divers in the biggest aquarium in CinéAqua or you can watch animal documentaries.  And then if you are feeling hungry for some fish to eat! you could always choose to dine in the Ozu restaurant, which is a gourmet Japanese restaurant that serves delicacies like sushi, so you can excite your taste buds.

If you visit the Aquastudio in the evening with its very unique stage backdrop then you can get to see lots of different artists perform and there have even been some well known and famous artists such as Jennifer Lopez who have performed here in the past.

There is a terrace that is open in the summer months that has a fantastic and unspoilt view of the Eiffel Tower.

Cinéaqua is open every day of the year except the 25th December and from Monday to Sunday it opens at 10am and closes at 8pm. The gates are always closed an hour before but on a Thursday the gates close at 6pm.
