A trully experience underwater! Great place to visit with your family or not. If you have 2+ days in Lisbon, then this is a place to definitelly go. Probably the best in Europe.

“Prety run-down place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2015

Pretty run-down place, needing major renovation. The Oceanrio is a much better and impressive choice. This Aquario is run by the portuguese Navy and they haven't invested a dime in renovation and modernization in decades. If you are a local its worth a one lifetime visit, but if you are a tourist use your time to see something better! If you like sea life go to the Oceanario.

“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.
