The Vasco da Gama Aquarium is a great attraction for children in Lisbon. As well as its wonderful collection of live fish and sea life, there are also preserved water birds, fish, seals, and mammals from King Carlos' oceanographic expeditions on display. The building includes two different sections, the Museum and the Aquarium, complementing each other to give a betetr understanding of the aquatic world. Outside, there's a small garden with a lake full of carp, which children enjoy feeding. Children under 6 go free and between 6 and 17 benefit from reduced prices.

Address: Rua Direita do Dafundo
