  • The place is fantastic and the kids love it. Very well structured and with a lot of information about the animals. Recommendation: Go during the end of periods to not catch the very full.

  • Pleasant enough space to take the kids to visit. All very clean and arranged with great variety of fish. Under the umbrella of the Navy presents in his vision, the bottom of the sea with a variety of marine species. Recommend a visit.

  • The site brings to memory the school study visits, when the site had a life of its own and a rate of visitors. Currently, in the era of new aquariums/protected areas and oceanariums velhinho Aquarium Vasco da Gama lost part of its glow. However, it remains a unique place of lading and investigations with centuries. Take your children, they will love.

  • Miniature version of the Oceanarium but more oriented to biology and even a bit of nautical science.
  • Recomendo a visita.
  • Já não visito faz muitos anos, mas quando era pequenino a minha mãe levava-me aqui com frequência e eu adorava
  • cemetery of fish (jars and formalin) should not be confused with Lisbon Oceanarium at the other end of Lisbon.

  • Indo com crianças de colo e ou carrinho não pareceu fácil aceder ao 1o andar. Não tentamos. Sugiro que coloquem setas no chão a sugerir um percurso para os visitantes.
