Tourist Attraction 4 suns

In March 2014, the Aquarium-Museum has been labelled «Tourist Attraction 4 suns» by the General Commission of Tourism (Commissariat Général au Tourisme = CGT). The term «Tourist Attraction» is protected in Wallonia. Just like hotels are awarded with «stars» and holiday accomodations with «grain ears», tourist attractions are awarded with «suns». This boosts them to reach a level of excellence.
