The Cité de l'Océan building was designed to resemble a large wave between the sky and the earth. You won't see any fish here, but you will enter fun and interactive spaces. The cradle of evolution, the ocean is a living entity, infinitely rich and exceedingly fragile. Take a ride in a bathyscaphe, venture inside the wheelhouse of a boat that ran aground or into the entrails of a whale. New virtual reality attractions round off the experience.
