If there's a spot you can't miss when you visit Lisbon is this one!The diversity of fauna amazing,the way the staff keeps all this immense complex is something they should be proud of!All the habitats are well labeled and animals are in great condition.In my humble opinion this is something your kids (and you) going to remember forever.

We felt like kids walking around this huge aquarium and feeling amazed at all the beautiful creatures especially when standing in front of the huge tank at the center of the building, what a 5 star show!

Its a very nice experience for kids and adults. All the information is well distributed and the connection with some animals is excellent, specially the otters. A must go for tourists and a must go for locals, at least once in five-ten years.

This is a beautiful space for sea lovers. You can relax and enjoy the under water scenaries for as long as you want. All type of fish seem to live in perfect harrmony. Refreshing!

Well, I've never been to an oceanarium, so when I knew there was one there, I went. It was brilliant, many explanations, species divided by oceans, nice to see that!

Modern building in a very modern area. The Aquarium shows many different fishes, and the jelly fish tanks are beautiful, the kids loved the day at the aquarium.
