Great aquarium. It can be a bit pricey, but it has a lot of diversity and animals worth the price (also when you think about how much it costs to maintain Polar Bears..... the price is justifiable).

since i was a little girl i felt fascinated by fishes, so we visited this big place to find a great collection of amazon tropical fish that filled my eyes, my fiancee wanted to know if he could prepare one of those to eat, i told him that they are ornamental and not edible.

This is a big aquarium with a mixture of freshwater, saltwater and land animals. Once you get to a bunch of stairs, climb up them and you will find some Brazilian animals. The new exhibit is very nice and features: meerkat, Colbus monkey, lemur, flying fox, Python , kangaroo, echinda, wombat, fur seal and polar bear.

There are a lot of fishes, animals and all of them seemed to be happy in their space. The place itself is very well maintained, clean and the staff is friendly. The polar bear is the highlight of the aquarium!

It is a fun place to spend some time in SP. Aquariums and zoos are usually considered children's activity, but we went in a group of 5 adults and had a great time! Sharks, stingrays, aquatic mammals, and fishes along with not-common-aquarium-animals such as meerkat, wombat, and monkeys. My favorite were the polar bears! It is a bit pricey, but... More

they didn't find something special for the aquarium, but for a rainy afternoon it's still a nice place to visit with a lot of different anymials and divers dancing with the sharks or big fisches who make big mess when they get the food and some cute little marmaid-girls

This was my first visit to the São Paulo aquarium, even though I've lived here all my life. To sum it up: it was amazing! The animals are very well kept, their pens are clean and we even experienced some of their feeding by the keepers! The aquarium is not "just" an aquarium at all! Apart from the huge variety... More

Good collection of exotic fishes and after initial tour of aquarium, the tour continues through sort of zoo with kangroos and fruit bats being the highlight. We saw the staff hand feeding fruit bats, which... More
