  • We visited the aquarium with family and my little girl of 1 year and 10 months. She loved it!!! It has cafeteria and on-site restaurant, fraldario with microwave and 3 shops along the way. There is a general store from the Aquarium, the Australia-themed store and the store of the polar bear. You can find many stuffed animals, cups, mugs and toys. The prices are high! We weren't in the film 7 d internal attractions or the Aquarium below zero because we were with small child. We got the 10:00 and realized that began filling up more for the 12:00. Worth the ride!

  • I believe I have been the best ride I've done in SP. ticket on Monday was 50 reais, but worth every penny. If you like animals and even more to take pictures, get ready because the memory is going to end. Many animals, a ride that took us around 3 hours to finish, counting the pause time for lunch. Polar bear at times interacts with the audience, tip, if he's jumping in the water, go down to underground can see it swimming, since we didn't know we discovered only later, when he unfortunately had already stopped. But if you're looking for a good ride, this is the place!

  • Amazing the good condition of the set, variety of fish and water animals, salty or sweet. The fish are beautiful and healthy. Sharks, penguins, Morea, stingrays, iguana, Boa constrictor, and lots and lots of colorful fish to the delight of the children. Visit as mandatory for children who visit the city.

  • Really enjoyed seeing the animals. We took our time there and saw everything in 5 hours. Some animals didn't have info signs. Others had their info displayed on TVs, but the animal displayed kept changing and we'd have to wait to read about the animal we wanted. The Jurassic and Subzero attractions were really basic and not worth 15 Brazilian reais. The 7D cinema was also really simple, but I had a little bit of fun. They're all too short. It is a worthwhile experience overall, since the animals are fun to watch, but I wouldn't recommend paying for the attractions.
  • The place is well designed and cool to explore. Lots of different animals and not just aquatic creatures, and well trained and helpful guides. Great for families and children. It´s located in a quiet, residential neighbourhood close to a subway station - just be careful to walk calmly and slowly because it´s a steep, ingrime rise from the subway to the place, or take a cab - its a very short travel. There are a few problems, though: everything is too expensive (tickets, souveniers) and the food is not good for the asked price. I recommend going on a Monday when admission is just half the price, and bring some snacks to eat there (There are some places nearby with better and cheaper meals). Don´t waste more money with the extra internal attractions. That would made the visit a lot more pleasant and fun.
  • The aquarium is not very big and the trails a quite narrow. It is still a nice place to go if it's a weekday, when there aren't a lot of people. It is overrated.
  • We have visited the São Paulo Aquarium on a January Vacation weekday. One initial suggestion is to take a good look at their website before the visit. Also, I would suggest to buy the parking ticket via web it is very convenient. The Aquarium is well set. The shark tank is pretty nice. But the premium part of the visit is the mini Zoo adjunct to the Aquarium (no need for an extra ticket). Kids loved the Polar Bear, Koalas and Kangaroos. Prices are not extremely welcoming, but they are worthy.
  • Wonderful exhibit for kids and adults alike. The ticket price is expensive but we found it worth the money. The tanks are positioned so little kids can easily go up and and look in, and the layout of the exhibit is well designed -- plenty to see but not too much distance to travel for little legs. There are also lots of rest areas throughout the facility to stop and sit or get a snack. We were surprised by the combination "zoo" exhibit at the end including kangaroos, muskrats and monkeys but the program designer did a neat job creating an airport gate to "transport" you to different countries. The polar bear tank is fantastic. Unlike other zoos you can get close enough to actually see the polar bears -- which are huge! There were a couple school tours while we were there but most of the time, we felt like we had the aquarium to ourselves. Our kids gave it two thumbs up!
