At Océanopolis, see the sea through the eyes of a scientist, a world of priceless flora and fauna that needs our protection.
More than 4 million visitors have passed through the gates of Océanopolis since its extension in 2000. Such popularity is no doubt linked to the judicious mix of detailed accurate information, and simplicity of presentation. The three themed exhibition buildings are each devoted each to a different ecosystem: polar, tropical or temperate, and the content is constantly updated by a team of scientists. 60% of French oceanographers and related research scientists work here in Brest! Starting in April 2010, and lasting for two years, Océanopolis will be mounting a big temporary exhibition, covering some 700m2, on the theme of marine biodiversity. Just be careful though - with 8000m2 of exhibition space, 50 different aquariums to see, and a thousand different species, you’ll need the whole day to take it all in. But rest assured – it will be well worth it!
