Planet Ocean Montpellier

Planet Ocean Montpellier is home to over 3,500 sea and ocean animals of 400 species, with animals from all over the world:  from the Mediterranean to the Indian Ocean, from the South African coast to the Atlantic Ocean and the Amazon.  In addition the museum is interactive with an simulation of a ship in a stormy sea and a 3D underwater exploration experience, as well as France's largest covered tank, 10 meters (33 feet) high and 18 meters (59 feet) wide.

We enter and wander.

And, what would an aquarium be without lizards, iguanas, frogs, and parrots?

As we reach the end of our visit, we find a space theme, with planets, asteroids, space suits, and ET.
