Who we are ?
The only aquarium that offers you to discover 3 aquatic domains in one place.
From the torrents of the French mountains to the distant seas, the Grand Aquarium de Touraine is the largest freshwater aquarium in Europe.
Come and discover all these ecosystems through 70 aquariums and its 2 million litres of water!
This journey begins at the source of the Loire, where trout and salmon live. Then you will go down this wild river in the middle of carps, pikes, pike-perches until the Silurium, plunged in the total darkness, where you will discover our catfish of more than 2 meters.
Don't hesitate to dip your hands in the touch pool for a privileged contact with the Koi carps.
Then head for the tropical countries to discover emblematic and curious species such as paddlefish, electric eels and piranhas. You will also come across several generations of caimans...
And finally, dive at 25°C into the tropical seas to discover the marine biodiversity through portholes. In our submarine, you can then explore the seabed; from the surface with the corals to the deep areas where the giant crab attracts you with its claws. Finally, you will pass through a 15m long tunnel of sea water where sharks swim amongst a multitude of colourful tropical fish!
