“Wonderful selection of underwater habitats from around the globe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Brilliant collection of creatures in their underwater habitats from around the globe despite the eyewatering 16 euro entry fee for chidren aged 12 years and over
It can get a bit crowded especially at feeding time for the cute sea otters.
The cafe was very expensive and the cappuccino is really a Nescafe sachet from a vending machine at the till.
Otherwise the attraction was great

“a great place to see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

I have liked very much the Oceanario of Lisbona.It is a great place in the former Exposition site, very well organize with stunning fishes and other animals to see.Is great to visit it with the audioguide because speaces are so many that you run the risk to get lost while visiting.Anyway is a great experience for your eyes to see all this perfectly placed in a great setting.I enjoyed very much also the exibition on turtles that was very interesting to see.The location is easy to reach withnthe metro and, passing through a nice Shopping center, by walking 10 minutesto reach it

“Great Place to Spend an Afternoon.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

The aquarium is located at the old Expo 98 fairgrounds. There is not much left of the Expo but a few places to eat and the aquarium. The fair grounds are very spacious and near the water and make for very pleasant walking. The aquarium is very well laid out and quite large. Lots of different sealife. Well worth a look and for a nice walk and lunch as well.
