Petit Futé's opinion on MARINARIUM

Plate millesim 2022

At the end of the quay that runs along the Ville Close, just after the Marina, the Marinarium overlooks the sea. Created in 1859 by Professor Coste, the marine biology station in Concarneau is the oldest in the world. It celebrates its 160th anniversary in 2019! Modernized in 2002, this structure is the property of the Natural History Museum and attracts the greatest specialists in marine life. Research at the Concarneau station focuses more specifically on the impact of ocean acidification on the physiology of organisms, but also on the reproduction, dispersion and geographical distribution of all marine species. "Knowing, understanding, managing the sea and respecting it better" are the key words of the Marinarium. Open to the public, everything is explained in a simple, playful and pleasant way by means of animations, but also regularly organised excursions. The importance of the oceans and their extraordinary biodiversity, the world of plankton, the immense wealth of the coastline, and the management of marine resources are illustrated by picture walls and aquariums. There is also an educational room with a nursery... The space retracing the history of the station, the conference room and the shop are freely accessible: a good way to discover the place. And every year there is a temporary exhibition, the next one is entitled Ocean, an unusual dive highlighting the harmful effects of human activity on the marine environment.

Très bon endroit pour connaître le monde marin. Plus centré sur l'éducation et la recherche, le marinarium permet de découvrir comment fonctionne l'océan. Pas de spectaculaire comme dans d'autres aquariums mais de l'information avec bassins tactiles pour les enfants. A faire
