Lisbon Oceanarium has been ranked the best 🏆aquarium in the world by TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice awards 2017. Congratulations! 👏👏👏
“Fantastic oceanarium. Enthralling from start to finish. Loved sitting in the little nook and watching turtles glide above us.”
“The oceanarium is divided into four zones, each of which belongs to a separate ocean. North Atlantic Ocean, Antarctica, Pacific Ocean, Indian Ocean
The route along the oceanarium is constructed in such a way, bypassing all zones and getting acquainted with the biosphere of the four oceans, in the center you can see in all its glory the largest aquarium symbolizing the global ocean. It produces a fascinating impression.”
“I do not recommend it to anyone. Very replicated oceanarium, very many laudatory reviews. And in fact, 40 euros for tickets in the void. We stayed there for 20 minutes, went around everything, because to the aquariums do not even come up because of the number of people ... Extremely negative impressions.”
“Very beautiful oceanarium!
I strongly advise to visit this oceanarium. If you buy a ticket online - it will be cheaper, at the entrance simply show PDF on your smartphone. A huge aquarium in the middle with a lot of beautiful fish and around it two floors of different climatic zones: one you enter - penguins and cool, the other - the tropics and the corresponding animals. And the penguins and otters can first be viewed from above, on land, then go down and see already in the water as they frolic.”
“The oceanarium is oriented in fact to children of secondary school age, there are really a lot of materials in the form of stands and audio recordings, there are two cinemas with whale films and marine fauna in English, working non-stop. Magnificent views of the central aquarium with sharks, mantas, fish and other marine life. In addition, separate aquariums dedicated to different marine communities, penguins and pr-pr-pr. The central aquarium visitors traverse the route twice on two levels, so to stand in the first on the route the hall (the most filled) and wait for the approach to the glass is not necessary. We were at the height of the day, there were a lot of children, the noise was incredible and it was very stuffy and humid, so in general there was a feeling of some physical discomfort, but the children present were just ecstatic. Councils - take drinking water with you, cafes only at the entrance and exit, there are no machines. The most interesting permanent exhibition, for a temporary need to pay another 7 euros, but there as lucky, the hall for temporary exposures is small, many simply do not accommodate. We looked at the marine installations of some Japanese designer who recently died. It's interesting, but the entire exposition is about 20 minutes. At the exit, a shop with souvenirs with the aquarium symbolism, but the assortment is quite tasty, the prices are not that much tucked up, sometimes it's simply not clear what those emblems or badges mean on toys, notebooks and other products.”
