The Cité de l'Océan occupies a building designed to resemble a large wave between the sky and the earth. You won't see any fish here, but you will visit exhibition spaces that are interactive and fun. The cradle of evolution, the ocean is a living entity which is both infinitely rich and exceedingly fragile. Take a ride in a bathyscaphe; venture inside the wheelhouse of a boat that has run aground or into the entrails of a whale; listen to an American skipper tell the story of the Bermuda Triangle; and even surf a virtual wave!
