Spent hours there with our 4 year old daughter - she was our excuse! 😉 Showcasing a great variety of sealife in well kept tanks in a lovely part of the city. Had a ride in a cable car afterwards and a lovely lunch afterwards...More

We weren't sure if this aquarium would be worth it, as we have visited several, but decided to give it a try. Couldn't be happier that we took the Metro there and enjoyed seeing the wide variety of aquatic animals that we have not seen...More

The Oceanarium is well worth a visit if in Lisbon, it isn't just somewhere to go if you have small children. The place is massive, the sea otters and penguins are especially good. We also had some lunch here as we were there so long-...More

I seen smaller and better Oceanarium than this one. Temporary exhibition poor and main exhibition average. €18 per ticket for both it’s little too much.

Hundreds and I mean hundreds of people. Lines and each viewing spot with so many people you can't get to the window. Great otherwise if you can find a time thats not crowded insanely.

There is basically one main tank and smaller exhibits around it. The main tank have hundreds (thousands?) of fish of multiple kinds and sizes and you walk around and see it from different angles

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.
