Especially interesting: the shark tank. Ready to take a dip?
A family learning experience
Yes, there's a river, but no sea coast in Lyon. Nonetheless, its aquarium, located on the outskirts of the city, is extensive and of course an especially excellent option for families, as much of its content is especially geared toward youngsters. It's divided insto various sections, each with a particular environment (warm waters, tropics, African lakes, etc.), and another where you can see sharks circling a boat. The Hall of the Five Senses includes a touch tank along with explanatory video. An entertaining and educational outing indeed.
