The site is also fitted with magnetic induction loops to allow hearing aid users to optimize their hearing: at reception, at the cloakroom counter, in the two amphitheatres and throughout their visit by means of the audio guides.

This desire to improve access for persons with disabilities can also be seen in the Aquarium's concern for feedback from visitors, who can record their comments in a guest book available at reception.
