  • My favorite part was the layout! The designers have created a terrific space to display all the marine wildlife. It's huge and so easy to tour --- just wander from one big room to the next...

  • Fantastic aquarium, one of the best I have visited anywhere in the world. Lots of fish, colourful and healthy, and tanks are clean and well cared for. Like all Portuguese people, Staff is super friendly and professional, we all speak more than one language. I highly recommend the gift shop, amazing T-shirts. If you can give a contribution to help care for the aquarium vs animals please do so ! The tickets is only €19 for adults but is well below price in comparison to smaller and less diverse aquarium I visited so is quite cost accessible. You have unique experiences packages. I love it and highly recommend the visit.
  • Highly recommend. Great value for €19 and well worth it for a full day out you can go on the cable cars nearby and get nice views of the river for an extra €6 euros . Great for families. You walk around the different geographic areas from above and then you get to see the lovely sea creatures below in their habitats. There was also a separate film shown in an imax type cinema. The sea dragons are especially beautiful. The sea otters and funny penguins were super cute . A great day out.
  • Super cool spot! Could spend the whole day watching the fish and sharks and everything just swimming around. There is also a cable car nearby and if you buy a combo ticket (for the cable car and aquarium) the cable car is almost free. Gives a nice view and then just head on in to see the marine life! Would recommend taking mushrooms before you go as it is an aquarium 😎
  • My family and I had a wonderful time. Very clean and modern for an aquarium. Lots of water ecosystems represented. The building itself is well-laid out and has a nice design aesthetic. The surrounding areas are wonderful as well with the nearby water garden and cable car. The ticket price is a bit steep but well worth it.
  • Simply Excellent!!! I was in two minds weather to go or not.. But I am glad I went. I really loved the place. Every bit worth it. We spent more than four hours. Very nice feel and high energy place... Must go for all Lisbon visitors.
