A friend whose opinion I trust said this was a must-visit on our trip to Lisbon. Sadly, I'm more inclined to agree with D_DuPlessis below... I really wanted to love it, but was distinctly underwhelmed, and found the penguin exhibit in particular quite depressing –...More

If you're in Lisbon this is a must!! I am a bit puzzled with the negative reviews? The variety of fish is second to none. I have been to several aquariums and this is by far the best. We spent a good few hours there....More

It was quite restful for us to spend a day at the Oceanario. A good change of pace after seeing a lot of downtown Lisbon.

Not the wow we expected but ok for an hour. The main tank is full to bursting which makes it look a bit sad in my view but one or two of the smaller side tanks are amazing.

I visited the Lisbon Oceanário with my two kids (7 and 12 years) and my wife. We loved it. Kids spent almost all the visit watching the sharks slowly swimming in harmony with other fishes in the central pool. We indeed enjoyed.

There isn't very much to see here and it's very overpriced for what it is. It's basically one large tank in the middle and you go round and round to the exit and there are a couple of little fish tanks along as you around....More
