The Carrousel des Mondes Marins is operated according to two ways of functioning according to the periods.

It is an incredible mechanical aquarium that the visitors discover at their own pace.

Wednesday afternoon from 14:00, every weekend and French school holidays

The tour cannot be reduced to a simple ride on a merry-go-round! It is a journey from the seabeds, the abyss to the surface of the ocean. Beyond exploring an extraordinary world, you can also come aboard in the fairground mode.

Access to the Carrousel with a ticket for an exploration of your choice:

  • Visit with a ride on the merry-go-round:
    Access to the gangways and the possibility to come on board of one of the elements, on one of the three levels.
  • Visit without a ride on the merry-go-round:
    Access to the gangways, no access to  the elements, not to the rotating levels.

Average visit duration: 50 minutes

During French scool terms: on Tuesdays,Wednesday mornings, Thursdays and Fridays

It is an animated exploration of the carousel. The machinists introduce the universe of the marine worlds from the seabeds to the surface of the sea and set some levels in motion. Visitors can’t have access to the levels, nor to the elements.
