Beautiful exhibits with up close views of sharks and rays. Well laid out floor plan. I kept saying wow at every stop. The penguin exhibit and otter show was a hoot.

The Aquario was more of a museum learning centre, with many fish tanks and a seal, but the atmosphere was eerie.

With 3 viewing levels of its main aquarium tank, one has the opportunity to really observe and to appreciate the vast wealth of our oceans and the diversity of life. There was only limited information provided regarding the species' present, and we found no personnel available for questions.

Loved all the great stores and had a great lunch there as well. It was nice just to walk around and people watch. There were people there from all walks of life, to businessmen to college kids, etc.

We were told to go see the oceanarium in Lisbon. Searching on trip advisor quickly led to the aquario vasco da gama. Since it had 4.5 rating and many pictures of large tanks we figured this was the one we should see. The aquario starts with a museum tour with some preserved fishes and some models of fishes too.
