You may use subway and go to Santos Imigrantes Station ( South East of São Paulo ) You may then walk some 15 minutes or take a cab ( it will cost you some 10 reais / 3,5 dollars ) Inside you have a display of Amazonian fauna ( sea & river fauna ) and African ; Indonesian and Australian plus some little polar ) There mammals in the Aquarium ( and some are not from water ( Koalas & Kangaroos ) There are some three shops for gifts ( some with Disney , which a little awkward ) The Staff is very congenial and helpful . You may take photos ( without flash ) It was amazing to me that this is not to stress the animals but I saw children and youngsters make SUCH A NOISE . I hope there is a kind of sound protection for the animals . I wld prefer the teachers that take these large groups had more concern for the fauna ( not to mencion the public ) The tickets are bought by the price of 80 euros ( some 27 dollars ) But there are a lot of promotion .I went on Monday and paid 50 reais ; if you use Internet ( at those days ) there would be a promotion too . Brazil is passing economic crisis now . Hope this is not another sign of difficulties for the Aquarium . My praise for the Staff . You feel their love and passion for the fauna ( even the huge snake )

It is a very nice place to visit, with or even without kids! It is well kept, clean and well organised. Kids of all ages ( up to their 80s) would enjoy seeing so many fishes in their "natural"environment! You would get plenty of information. The place is worth visiting.

This place is a nice place to bring your kids, they will enjoy the whole time there. Besides many fish species, this aquarium also have other animals like kangaroos, monkeys, bats, penguins and polar bears.
The exit is weird because it puts you in a side street, not in the same place you got in to.
The best way to get there is by taxi or uber.

There is a parking lot just next door. It costs 30 reais and 70% of spots are under the sun.
The place in general is very clean
The staff are well trained.
Tip:. At the beginning of the tour the row is very tight so do not use your stroller.
As I said the price unfortunately is so high for a 3 hour tour.
They do not accept credit card. Only cash or debit.
