Located on the river banks of the Meuse in Liege, the Aquarium-Museum offers everyone an exciting day filled with scientific discoveries.
The Aquarium lets you dive into the oceans, seas, lakes and rivers of the world, without getting yourself wet. 46 aquariums harbour over 2,500 species: piranhas, electrical fish, blind tetras, Australian stonefish, catsharks, pikes, eels and many other types of fish.
In the "Coral reefs and sharks" section, you can admire the blacktip shark, clown fish in their anemones, surgeon fish and many more inhabitants of the Great Barrier Reef.
You can also discover the new exposition, "Corals in the tropics!" that presents inert corals, where you can see living corals in shiny colours. Interactive boundaries, maquettes, drawings... let the visitors understand what corals are, where they live, what they eat, how a reef is constructed, which threats they face...
In the Museum of more than 1000 m², you will find out a lot more about the richness and the beauty of the animal kingdom: more than 20,000 different animals, mounted or as a well-preserved skeleton, from all continents: fleas, whale, dolphin, koala, gorilla, elephant, anaconda, tarantula, squid, shellfish, animals of our region and many birds.
In a brandnew section of the museum, you can admire the glass models of invertebrate marine animals, that have been created over a hundred years ago by master glass blowers Leopold and Rudolph Blaschka. Used as didactic objects yesterday, while being true pieces of art today.
