Aquarium de la Guadeloupe was closed for renovation and has reopened in 2018! What does it look like now?


The museum has done some major upgrades!! For instance, there’s ENGLISH!!! There’re now mini screens next to each exhibition group. It is a lot easier to understand what’s going on than before.


What I love about the upgrade is the interactive exhibitions! Having a legit reason to crawl under exhibitions is fab 😛

Shark tank is one of the aquarium’s highlight. However, the sharks are not exactly the ferocious type. LOL They sleep for 18 hours a day wahaha. They don’t need to move around to breath, so unlike other sharks, they can really just stay still and sleep. And man, they stay still.aquarium-guadeloupe-review-reopen-5168.JPG

If you want to see them in action, it is better to plan your trip during the feeding time. Plus, there’s a small presentation (French and English)! These sharks only get fed twice a week.


Although this aquarium is tiny, it managed to add a touching pool! I love touching pools wahaha. I promise that I touched each creature gently. Nothing crazy like in Finding Nemo 2.aquarium-guadeloupe-review-reopen-5341.JPG

I guess if you don’t read all the displays, this is an 1 hour visit sort of aquarium. Otherwise, I recommend 3 hours and bring your own drinks. There’re benches and resting area, but no vending machine or cafe inside the aquarium!


There are some shy creatures that you need to hang around to see them. LOL
