Opened in 1931 for the Paris Colonial Exposition, the Aquarium Tropical presents some 5,000 animals and more than 300 species: primitive and electric fish, Asian waters, and aquatic life from Africa and South America, and of course a show with the crocodile pit, sharks, and piranhas. A unique experience of aquatic biodiversity. A must-see with the family, set inside an exceptional art deco building in Paris.
