Embark on an exciting voyage of discovery into the world below the water surface. The Oceanário de Lisboa has a gigantic 5,000 cubic metre aquarium that gives you the feeling of walking on the seabed. The focus of the aquarium on environmental protection and responsibility towards the environment will make your visit not only impressive, but also extremely educational.
Oceanário de Lisboa is also unique from the outside. The award-winning building gives the impression of an anchor boat floating over an artificial lake. The main aquarium is so large that it gives you the illusion of a boundless open ocean. Due to its depth, it is possible to observe the various living creatures that thrive on the surface, as well as the "pelagic" middle plains and the "ground feeders" that call the seabed home.
You will also find separate habitats that recreate unique marine ecosystems such as the North Atlantic rocky coast and tropical Indian coral reefs. During the tour you will learn more about the practical steps you can take to protect endangered environments in your everyday life.
