My best moments are: the huge fish tank, the cold arctic zone with penguins, the sea otters and the tropical forest. I was so happy to be able to come here!

Nice place, easy parking but high entrance prices. With small children is not so simple to come close to the glass in order to observe the fish.

We have been to Aquariums and Oceanariums all over Europe, this is definitely the best. The manta rays are amazing , loved the sunfish and seeing the penguins dive is really special. Head and shoulders above the rest.

Parque das Nacoes
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

No extra ticket needed, but as 'Mbvanwees' just said, it all depends on feeding times. You may be able to catch the penguins being fed, but I suspect they feed the fish in the main tank when the aquarium is closed.
