We spend the morning here with out 8 year old. The whole experience is built around one massive aquarium which you see at many different angles with something new to see each time. Lots of interesting information and helps children understand how the ecosystem works. It is quite small so even after going around twice we were finished in two... More

A great place to get away from the sun, sea and sangria. This place will never cease to amaze. You will see life beyond in major oceans such as the Pacific, Atlantic, Indian oceans etc. My personal favourite animals I saw had to be the sea otters. They are so charming, you want to take one home.

It's always nice to visit an Oceanario in any part of the world and the Lisbon one is quite pleasant to spend a few hours of a rainy afternoon. The big water glass tank is the highlight but there are many other small and big animals to discover We enjoyed it and recommend even if one does not like sea... More

A magic place for kid and adults. The kids have a magical moment , feeling inside of the water and swimming with the different fishes.. The lights and the big aquariums give the felling. As an adult felt as kids and bring good memories from childhood. If you have time, spend 3 hours in this magical place

Very well organised with different sections and presentations. Set near the beautiful River Tagus in Lisbon. Safe to go with the family or friends. Very educational for the children and the adults too. They have the most beautiful species and variety too! Just fantastic!

We were impressed by the design of the main tank. It comprised not only a huge volume for larger animals and for shoals of fish, but also niches where smaller fish could hide, each with its own viewing spot for visitors. We were impressed by the opportunities for learning too. Although we didn't go to Lisbon to visit an oceanarium,... More

Staying in Parque das Nacoes

Neighborhood Profile
Parque das Nacoes
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.
