Good family day out with a cost of €39 which is not too bad. I've only ever been to one other Oceanarium (in London) and I'd say this one is better with more side tanks and exhibits.
There are also a few kid friendly activities around the Oceanarium and the area is quite a pleasant place to while away a few hours on a sunny day.

Very nice and big aquarium.... really worth it. You can find very strange species of fish and animals ... you can get there either by taxi or metro and if the latter you can after take a cable that goes on the river and allow you to see the expo area. There is also a big mall nearby.

A bit out of town but worth to see. Huge central aquarium with a multitude of fish and quite a lot of smaller tanks. Very didactic for children.

Very good and informativ. For young and old. The great central aquarium is very impressive and surrounded by the four oceans of the world in miniature.

The Oceanarium was great I just found it very dark at certain parts we bought it in with our hop on hop off bus ticket, so when you get there you have to show your ticket and they give you a ticket to get into the Oceanarium, it was most enjoyable seeing all the fish species
