We’ve been to quite a lot of aquariums and this one was pretty decent! Highlights were the sea otters (timed well for feeding time - fun and cute to watch!) and the huge tank with so many species in it - loved the Manta Rays...More

Takashi Amano aquariums are wonderful! Wabi Sabi indeed in its full perfect imperfectness. Nothing lasts, nothing is finished, nothing is perfect.

We went here mainly because it was rainy and it provided a fun way to escape the wind and rain. Great central tank, penguins and otters, lots of information on conservation.

Modern and environmentally aware centre. Well set out, plenty to look at with a main core big tank. Little side tanks and environments enlighten the visitor to different worlds.

Idiotic quesystem - or lack of a functional system. Have been to better aquariums. Would not recommend it for families or others for that sake.

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

Four of us took a taxi from the centre of Lisbon and it cost 15 euro, so you should be paying a bit less.

‫We ate at La Rucula, an Italian restaurant very near the oceanarium (200-250 meters). Very tasty and nice. There are also other restaurants at walking distance in the area.‬
