  • This site has several species of birds and fish are placed in environments conducive to their habitat. The observation of the large aquarium with floor-to-ceiling glass in all locations of the central tank is spectacular. Literally the huge fish and schools are ahead of you. Site worth the Euros you pay on entry (17 euros each at the time).

  • Great place to visit, especially with children. Well maintained, several species and you feel like you're underwater. In addition to the tanks, exhibitions that pay for the part. In day and week is not too full. Fun and enchantment.

  • Really beautiful as expected, we were about 4 hours doing twice round to see the things we were liked more. The Central tub is huge and breathtaking beauty of the many fish of many species within it. Very nice the other basins divided by zones and all other smaller tanks with within the species. Highly recommended!

  • 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!
