La Cité de la Mer: a family attraction all about man’s adventures under the sea

Under the great Art Deco vault, of what used to be the Transatlantic liner terminal, it has taken over this unique architectural heritage, built in 1933, figurehead of the largest artificial roadstead in the world. 

Eleven years after its opening, it is one of the most popular leisure attractions in France, through a series of themed exhibits that both inform and entertain visitors.

La Cité de la Mer, it is 17 aquariums, le Redoutable, the first nuclear-powered submarine and the largest submarine opened to the public in the world. 

In 2012, it celebrated its 10th anniversary and its 2,500,000th visitor.
