Public Aquarium of Brussels, Brussels, Belgium
Avenue Emilie Bossaertlaan, 27 B, Brussels, Belgium 1081| Map |
Although not as large and diverse as other similar attractions, the Public Aquarium of Brussels is worth checking out when traveling with young children in Brussels, Belgium. The aquarium's nearly 50 exhibits contain more than 250 species of small fish, amphibians and other invertebrates representing five continents. Clown fish, anemone and frogs are among the colorful creatures visitors can expect to see. Sharks and other larger fish and mammals are not housed in this aquarium. However, the aquarium is home to endangered species facing extinction in their natural environment, but that can thrive in this facility where they can reproduce. Many families find it useful to use an audio guide that offers detailed information about the aquarium's underwater residents and environmental issues. Although it seems unrelated to the aquarium, kids are also offered an opportunity to draw during their visit. Family amenities include a picnic area and a baby's changing table in the women's restroom. Food and drinks are not allowed inside the Public Aquarium of Brussels, located just outside the city center in Belgium.
