very reasonable to get in, the exhibits are on 2 floors, and takes at least 3 hours to see everything. It was really good to be able to get up close to the penguins, and sea otters, which were really cute!
The gift shop was pricey , 4 euros for a fridge magnet !

Me and my daughter were enchanted with all the diferent species that we saw.
Beautiful place, large, quiet and unforgettable for the young people and for the oldest.
You can leave your childs sleeping there for 1 night to stay watching nature almost in his habitat.
Don't forget to go there.

Was my first real aquarium visit. I was happy with it, although the lighting in the main tank could have been better for pictures and just overall viewing. Side exhibits were good. Price was reasonable. Definitely should go here if you are visiting Lisbon.

I think we paid 16 euros per person. The visit included what they called the "temporary and permanent" exhibits. The overall walk through took about an hour and we enjoyed it. The gift shop at the end was very overpriced.
