Discover the Grand Aquarium de Touraine
Like a fish in water, dive into the deep end!
The largest freshwater aquarium in France
Preserve, conserve and educate are the three main missions of the Aquarium de Touraine. In the 80 tanks on the site, more than 360 species swim together. Many of them are considered threatened. The aquarium makes sure that this is not the case and tells you what to do to prevent this from happening again.
This total immersion in the fresh waters of the Loire will allow young and old to learn more about all the fish in the world. Along the way, you will discover original and exotic worlds, sometimes even in the dark. The wild marine environment is yours to discover!
Ecosystems to discover step by step
During your visit to the Grand Aquarium de Touraine, explore the seabed and encounter 3 distinct ecosystems:
- The fresh waters of the Loire ;
- Tropical fresh water;
- Sea water.
Experiences to enjoy together
The Aquarium offers its visitors unique adventures on its premises.
Become a caretaker for a day and go on the other side of the glass. Accompany the fish keepers to learn more about this fascinating profession.
The team also invites you to go behind the scenes of the aquarium. You will learn all about how the aquarium works, how the species reproduce, how they are fed...
Finally, take your child and his friends to the Aquarium to celebrate his birthday among the fish... or almost. A treasure hunt will lead them to discover the smallest corners.
The enigmas will open a private room where a workshop will be held for the children.
