I have visited many aquariums around the world, and this has to be one of the best there is. The sheer impact of the main tank had me staring in awe every time I came across a new viewpoint. I never in my life expected to see a sunfish, let alone one more than two metres across. The main exhibits are based on showing entire habitats, at the surface and then below. Great views of diving penguins, sea otters, puffins as well as a huge variety of fishes. When standing at the ground floor looking up into the main tank it is as if you really are underwater and there is so much to see. If you love aquariums, you must visit. The kids seemed to be having a blast as well ...

We were a couple here for a city break and spent a good few hours exploring the exhibits. Not too sure I would want to go during school holidays though as be it gets packed!

A must visit while in Lisbon. The layout of the Oceanario is fantastic. You will travel the seas of the world and see their native ocean habitants. The center is a constant and offers many places to sit and reflect. A lovely relaxing morning or afternoon.

A nice place to spend 3-5 hours. If you have kids it is a place you must visit definitely. You may also take a stroll nearby, eat at a restaurant in the area (cheap sushi-yeah!) and visit the mall.
