This is without doubt the best aquarium we have ever visited anywhere we have been takes a good hour and a half to see it all the line for tickets takes some time so best book online and get tickets in advance.

Oceanarium is a must visit place in Lisbon. The place is extremely interesting and very entertaining. We visited there with two teens and stayed for hours. Everyone were impressed after the visit. Highly recommended.

I went with my husband and son (he has only 1 year and 3 months) and we love the Oceanário. They have beautiful fishes, sharks, pinguins. My son also loved. So, I indicate this program to those who have family or not, cause it’s great!

Late afternoon on a weekday is just perfect. I went there at about 16:00 and by the time I was out there was hardly anyone in line to enter.
