This second biggest aquarium in the world hardly leaves anyone unimpressed. The main tank is simply mind staggering and it would be easy to spend hours by watching it alone. However the tank is surrounded by other habitats full of exciting details so there will...More
We were staying at a nearby hotel on our last night in Portugal. We were motivated by the accolades to visit, and were not disappointed. Granted the majority of visitors mostly included youngsters of all ages, who were thoroughly enjoying the experience. We watched the...More
The animals seem well kept and it looks very clean. When we visited the oceanarium there was the "Forests Underwater" exhibition by a Japanese artist. It was very unique and worth the extra euros. The penguins and the otters were my favorite!

We visited the Oceanarium when staying in Lisbon, and we loved the diverse displays and creatures we had not encountered before. The main tank is the centrepiece with lots of unexpected inhabitants to meet on the way round including sea otters and tree frogs.
One of the best aquariums in Europe. At least 3h needed for full visit. I could spend the day there to be honest. Save some time for the small aquariums at the end with anemones, jelly fish and a beautiful octopus and spider crabs.
The aquarium is not inexpensive, but I would return if I came back to Lisbon with children. It has some excellent areas for kids. The concept, large middle tank, and fun creatures make this aquarium something very special. Personally, I loved the otters. They were...More

I read quite a few of the negative reviews and was tempted to skip this attraction..
So glad I didn't.. and the experience was enhanced as there were relatively few people at the attraction so there was enough space to view all the activities around...More
This neighborhood was built up at the end of the 1990s mostly because of the Expo '98. The pavilions and structures that once were the home of all the Expo's attractions and exhibits are still culturally and artistically significant. In Parque das Nações you'll explore conference and concert pavilions, a shopping center, trendy restaurants and an enjoyable cable car ride you can't miss out on. On top of this, the
amazing Lisbon Oceanarium (one of the most spectacular things you'll ever see in the city) will take your breath away: its respect and will to preserve natural wildlife is uncanny. Easily accessible by metro, bus or taxi from the city center, Parque das Nações is highly recommended for anyone who'll spend more than 3 days in the Portuguese capital.
