“Fabulous oceanariums and interesting modern architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Not cheap to enter but hours of entertainment and great metro and shopping centre designed by Calatrava and the amazing Vasco da gama bridge . Took the cable car one way which was fun. Fair amount of walking but well worth the trip .

“Best oceanario in Europe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

It's huge, spacious and air conditioned. Clean aquariums. We've seen a lot of different species of fish, turtles, shellfish and marine animals. You need at least two hours to see everything.

“Amazing tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

This is a great place to be in Lisboa. The main aquarium is fantastic, full of maritime life and colours. Cost is a bit high, but it is worth every cent.

“Big tanks, lots of fish etc., great building, cool area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Have not been to many aquariums so was impressed. Some big tanks with lots of fish and things (sharks, manta rays) swimming around together. That was different and neat for me. Also some nice outdoor areas with pools for penguins, cute sea otters and so on. The area of the aquarium is very modern, very neat architecture, so enjoyed that as well.

“Oceanarium”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Average exhibits. Skip the turtles and extra charge, and the snack bar. Plus it us a fair distance to the metro stop
