  • Living in Lisbon and having it turn all I finally tried the Oceanarium. Interesting thing to say, charming the big central pool. The atmosphere is very dark to allow a better view then to someone like me who is blind at night like a hen advice guide. Nice for kids perhaps more than for adults even though there were a few children during my visit. Price maybe too expensive in relation to what is offered. Council purchase online to save money and avoid any queues.

  • Very good, definitely not lose for lovers of nature. For those who have a few hours available, and a great place to unwind and relax while we expand the knowledge about fauna maritima from different sources. Point of interest both for adults and for children. Recommend.

  • Great place! Great experience! Highly recommend to visit, even if you so them all, this one would be a great enjoyment. As a popular tourist attraction it is crowded, so go early if possible. Price for tickets is €15,30 for adults, and €9,90 for kids and seniors (65+). After all, there are the number of cafes around to cache the berth.
  • Its so big and many types of fish! Its no so expensive and it creates awareness about the damage we do to the ocean. Second largest acuarium in europe :)
  • The first room has the longest tropical tank in I have ever seen and the Japanese inspired gardening in the tank is stunning. The rest is a huge salt water tank covering 2 floors with many windows and view points. Loads of species. Just keep moving around the rooms and eventually you'll find less crowded sections.
  • What an amazing place! If you have time, don't hesitate to go. It takes about 1-2 hours to go through. Don't forget to check out the changing exhibit on the upper floor.
  • Beautiful oceanarium with the biggest single tank I'll ever see. Such an incredible mix of sea life in the center tank, and other fascinating sea life in the surrounding smaller tanks. I could have spent hours and hours here. This is a must-sea in Lisbon!
