“A unique living museum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

Discount with Lisboa Card, fantastic number of species, the sea-otters alone are worth seeing (and have a lovely story; their parents were named after Eusebio (football legend) and a Portugeuse singer.

“A little disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

We had high hopes and although we enjoyed our visit we couldn't help but to compare to Valencia which blew us away. A good way to spend a few hours during your trip but don't expect anything amazing. The best part was seeing the Sea Otters.

“Lots to see”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

Aquarium was very nice with many things to see. It does take a bit to get used to the change bright light to dark once you initially walk in. It is also very relaxing with quite a few places to sit and watch the fish swim around.

“I had my bike stollen right in front of the security offices”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

If you go there leave your bike at home or you'll be left without it. There are cameras but they didn't do me much good.
