Great oceanarium, similar to nausica near bologne. The big tank has so many fish in it that it looks different from each side and level. Particular favourite was the sea otters.

English info / translations

Quite busy as it was rainy day, but plenty of space further on.

Cafe for lunch was just too busy so went to restaurant nearby.

Well thought out and planned, descriptions in Portuguese and English. We bought ticket online and took uber, cost was 16.50 and 8 euros respectively. We arrived at opening and ppl already queuing to buy ticket. We left at 11.15 and the place was rammed with ppl. Walked up a hill to the metro, depending on your party size it might be worth taking an uber. Good job Lisbon Oceanarium!

Not the sort of place we would normally visit but we really enjoyed the experience. Amazing fish in huge tanks. mesmerising to sit and watch. Located very close to a big shopping centre with a semi decent food court.

Good family day out with a cost of €39 which is not too bad. I've only ever been to one other Oceanarium (in London) and I'd say this one is better with more side tanks and exhibits.
There are also a few kid friendly activities around the Oceanarium and the area is quite a pleasant place to while away a few hours on a sunny day.
