|About these ratings|
The Oceanário de Lisboa (Oceanarium) is not only Portugal's largest indoor aquarium -- but it's Europe's as well. Exhibits correspond to different oceans, including the Tropical Indian, the Temperate Pacific, Antarctic, North Atlantic, as well as the Global Ocean. Across these different habitats, travelers will find animals like red scorpionfish, Alaskan sea otters, striped catsharks and colorful, tropical birds doing their thing. Consider visiting early in the day or on weekdays to dodge crowds. Recent TripAdvisor users enjoyed their visits to the Oceanarium; some say it was fun for kids and adults. You can find it a brief walk away from the Oriente metro stop.
