“Espetacular !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2014

One of the most beautiful and amazing places that I have been ! The environments are amazing. Each corner shows a different area of the globe - from artic,to tropical. The Otters and the Penguins are a separate show. So cute !

“A great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2014

This is one of the largest aquariums in the world. It is divided in sections that you visit as you go along. Extremely well organised and an absolute most for any Lisbon visitor!

“A PRICELESS SMALL MUSEUM”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2014

This Museum is based, mostly, on collections of Dom Carlos I, the last Portuguese ruling King (in fact, his son, was the last one, after his father murder, but only for some months..) ; not a "must to see", but deserves a visit that you wont forget.

“One of the best Aquariums in the world!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2014

I think it´s a must to visit in Lisbon. Very modern with 4 natural environments and a well done maintenance that you can see by yourself. We can also see feeding times when all the species get their appropriate food. Well explained for foreigners and in the neighborhoods there are a lot of restaurants and places to get a quick snack.

“This is right up there with the best.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2014

What a pleasure to discover this on s Sunday outing and see all the Portuguese families showing their children these treasures of the sea. It measures up with the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
