The Aquarium-Museum in Liège will take you on a wonderful journey through the animal and aquatic universes, featuring fish from around the world.

The Aquarium

The Aquarium's 50 tanks are home to 2,500 fish ( 200 species in total). Amongst them are the legendary piranhas, clownfish with their anemones, blind cave-dwelling fish, stonefish... Let alone the blacktip reef sharks and baby dogfish! A wonderful (but dry!) immersion in the ocean, sea, lake and rivers worlds.

The Museum

The museum, in turn, showcases the riches and beauty of the animal kingdom. There are 20,000 specimens to admire (preserved, stuffed, skeletons): from the smallest flea to the largest whale, anacondas, spiders, shells, a stuffed bear, chimpanzees and other primates.

The TréZOOr room features scientific, historical and artistic specimens: wax models, the prestigious Blaschka collection, extinct species, naturalised specimens.

A gallery also is dedicated to the relationship between animals and features illustrations and a movie.

Exhibition

From February 19th, 2020, discover SEA GLASS: glass sculptures representing sea animals, made by artist William Geffroy. Fascinating.
