  • We have included this stage to involve our 3 year old girl. She absolutely loved it. We could see a great variety of sharks, manta rays, moon fish etcetera. I think the aquarium of Genoa is superior but we were all very satisfied for the visit of this oceanarium. I recommend you buy tickets online

  • During our stay in Lisbon, it rained every day. Then it was important to look for indoors. Walking by Metro to Vasco da Cama shopping Centre and a short walk from there are Oceanario. If you have purchased the Lisboa card, you will receive a discount on your entry. Much to look at so don't miss this!
