We spent the afternoon at this aquarium on a rainy day in Lisbon. We chose it based on the Trip Advisor recommendations and were not disappointed. It is a mesmerizing exhibit, entertaining and informative. You cannot help but be drawn in to the main aquarium as you view it from both floors and from every angle. The additional exhibits are...

Visited a few of these but this was the best so far. Excellent vieuws on the sharks and so on. But also the concept to see the other animals is great and takes you very close to them. Children will love it, so excellent option if its a rainy day

The price for the entrance fee is a bit high and the location is far out from the city - it took two metro lines to get there, but overall, I really enjoyed myself. There was so much sealife to view in the large, main tank and the individual aquariums were very interesting and full of life. The place was... More

I am a lover of aquariums. It shows me a world that I am completely unfamiliar with and mostly terrified of, but safely contained within a giant glass tank. Which is essentially what I found this 'oceanarium' to be, a giant tank with possible the biggest sun-fish(??) I have ever seen!!! Honestly, if it was swimming towards you, it looked... More

Spent half a day here in november, the location of the building was beautiful and the oceanarium was home to so many interesting species. It looked fresh and clean and the animals seemed to be happy and comfortable. The sea otters were especially adorable.

We enjoyed our time at the really interesting "Oceanário de Lisboa". Located within walking distance from the metro station "Oriente", near to the shopping center "Vasco da Gama" at the old area of the Expo with the "Parque das Nações". We paid € 14 per person. You can use lockboxes for free for your stuff. The whole area is really... More
