I come here often with my family and my kid, which is now a teen, and we still get amazed and surprised every time! It is really worth a visit and just stop and stare at it! Go during the week to avoid too much...More
We bought our tickets online to save queuing. It was very busy when we went at midday so maybe going later would be advisable. Also be prepared to wait your turn to get the best views. We took baby in the stroller- just be careful...More

Most amazing and magnificent aquarium . I have never visited a site that had such an EXTENSIVE display of acquatic life. But do skip the TEMPORARY display. It was an extra charge for a small , somewhat empty display. Not worth the Money
Worth a visit. Large variety of fish etc, from all over the world.
Popular, so very crowded. Hard to see must things, because of all the people. Not recommended if you get stressed by having to wait.

We visited at noon on a Friday. We had to wait and wait and use very sharp elbows to get a glimpse of any of the many aquariums in this place. After awhile we just gave up and tried to get out, but it was...More

Very nice aquarium in a very nice location! The normal tour takes 2 to 3 hours, don’t have time to get bored; even with young kids.
The area around is very nice too, with a nice view on the Vasco de Gama impressive bridge.
We enjoyed our trip to the oceanarium. Very relaxing watching the fish in the main tank and the ocean forest exhibition. Despite lots of people, it was quiet most of the time. Well designed and organised.
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.
