The HUGE central aquarium is viewable from just about everywhere in this stand alone huge Oceanarium.
Be sure and check out the public hammocks in the small park that precedes the entrance. Perfect stop to get off your feet for a bit.
I am ambivalent on zoos and animal exhibitions, but because of their conservational approach, I visited this “marine zoo.”
Well set-up and not too crowdy when I was there. There’s many nooks and crannies to look into the large aquarium in the middle and there’s...More
We went to Lisbon's oceanarium, which is considered one of the best of europe for a good reason. Besides all the animals, that seam to be well taken care of, the oceanarium gives you a great experience and you learn so much about the sea...More
Kind of looks like an aircraft carrier. It is huge with more then 450 species and 16,000 individual fish and creatures. You could spend hours in this wonderful place. If you are touring with kids save this for second or third day when they are...More

This neighborhood was built up at the end of the 1990s mostly because of the Expo '98. The pavilions and structures that once were the home of all the Expo's attractions and exhibits are still culturally and artistically significant. In Parque das Nações you'll explore conference and concert pavilions, a shopping center, trendy restaurants and an enjoyable cable car ride you can't miss out on. On top of this, the
amazing Lisbon Oceanarium (one of the most spectacular things you'll ever see in the city) will take your breath away: its respect and will to preserve natural wildlife is uncanny. Easily accessible by metro, bus or taxi from the city center, Parque das Nações is highly recommended for anyone who'll spend more than 3 days in the Portuguese capital.
I'd recommend to buy tickets online. Thus you'll not wait at all. We bought in the evening prior the day we planned to visit Oceanarium and download tickets to a smartphone. On the next day we just passed without any queue.
