Aquarium Tropicale Porte Doree

Most visitors coming to Paris don't think of visiting the Aquarium Tropicale Porte Doree
I went last night for the opening of Art, Mode, Design on till June 12
The Art Deco building alone is worth a visit - 293 Avenue Daumesnil 75012 Metro Porte Doree

On to the real fish


Such a romantic place, the aquarium for strolling

Dots too.
Red piraรฑa fish from Brazil..amazingly still, waiting for dinner?
I took a mini video. It didn't upload. Just 8 seconds of serenity now.
Aquarium Tropicale Porte Doree is a good place to calm down 
You'll be inspired to get back in the tank, splish, splash

Looks like fun! I will check it out in April. It's very convenient for me since l'Hotel de la Porte Dorรฉe, where I always stay, is at 273, ave Daumesnil! Thanks for the heads-up!

Something quite fishy about yer recent post,
but I LOVED it! Great colors, and as always, wonderfully creative photos.
Love that little wc at the top.

If I were a fishy dancer I'd be afraid of getting tangled up in all that fluff :-)

Isn't that funny you went to the other one? My girls wanted an aquarium and we did Trocadero last week which was excellent - this one looks interesting!

Well, who'd a-thunk it? An aquarium in Paris. And yes, the building does look awesome -- I love Art Deco so I would make the trip just to get a gander at it.
