Who are we?
Visit the biggest freshwater aquarium in France. The only aquarium where you can discover three different aquatic zones in the one place.
From French mountain streams to distant seas, the Grand Aquarium de Touraine is the biggest freshwater aquarium in France.
Discover all the ecosystems in 70 aquariums and 2 million litres of water!
The journey starts at the source of the Loire river where trout and salmon are found. Then you descend this wild river alongside carp, pike, pikeperch to the Silurium, where you are plunged into total darkness. Here you will discover sheatfish measuring over 2 metres.
And don’t forget to dip your hands into the tactile pool, for a touching experience with the Koi carp.
Then head for tropical lands and discover strange but legendary species such as paddlesfish, electric eels and piranhas. You will also meet several generations of caimans...
Then dive into 25°C tropical water to discover the marine biodiversity through the portholes. You can explore the depths of the sea in our submarine: from the coral on the surface down to the depths, where the giant crab will woo you with his pincers. Finally, pass through the 15-metre seawater tunnel where sharks swim amongst a multitude of brightly coloured tropical fish!
