“MUST - DON'T MISS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

At first I thought, well it's just fish. What interesting could there be?
It was a wonderful surprise. Although the tickets are a little expensive it totally worth it. It's the best thing in Lisbon.
I traveled in all tourist spots in Lisbon and this is definitely a must.
There is a huge - 2 floors aquarium with all kinds of nice fish, and also birds and animals. Also from time to time there is a temporary exhibitions. In short - don't miss.
Oh, it says that there is a discount on the web, worth trying.

“very nice place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

A beautiful detour from old town, both for adults and children, in the Expo '98 area. A big central pool is surrounded by smaller pools and the visit goes all around it.
