Lisbon Oceanarium - Entertainment Lisbon - Portugal

Lisbon’s new Oceanarium is a true marvel of modern engineering. Built as part of Nations Park for the 1998 Expo, the Oceanarium has become one of Lisbon’s most popular tourist draws. Inside the new building are a number of smaller aquariums all centered around an enormous central tank which houses the most spectacular marine animals on display, including sharks, rays, schools of fish, eels and even a couple of bizarre-looking sunfish (mola mola). On the corners of the building are engineered habitats, where you will find penguins, otters and more. The Oceanarium is fun for adults as well as kids. Guided tours are available, but not really needed.
