Owner description: Opened in 1998, the Oceanário was the centerpiece of the XXth Century's last World Fair, themed "The Oceans, a Heritage for the Future", and eternally binds Lisbon to the Oceans.MissionThe Oceanário’s mission is to promote knowledge of the oceans and bring up the public about the duty of protecting natural heritage, through changing their daily habits.While walking through impressive and unforgettable exhibits, visitors are encouraged to learn fascinating things about the oceans and, more importantly, how to make decisions in their daily lives that actively promote the conservation of nature.

“Half a day spent here.”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

Transported to another world. Well layed out and the turtle exhibit was well worth the extra fee. Lots of fishes to see.

“Great Oceanario - Cold and distant neighbourhood”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

Great the Oceanario itself but the area where it is feels quite cold and distant from everything. The Oceanario is worth the visit - but don't think it's worthwhile to linger in the neighbouring 'attractions'

“Another face of Lisbon”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

There were 2 attractions, the permanent one and a temporarily one on turtles this time.
Audio guide can be skipped, pieces of information provided are no so useful and complete.
The surroundings of the museum are interesting to walk through to discover a more modern face of Lisbon despite a lot of empty areas.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

The Oceanario is quite fantastic. Although it seems a little out of the way, it is well worth the visit. Currently, there is an exhibition of sea turtles, which allows you to watch them swim beneath you.
The Expo centre is great; spacious, clean and with great views.
