Nice to visit, they try to make it very interactive. For example there was a staff member explaining what was in the aquariums and let us touch and hold a sea urchin which was a nice experience. Overall worth a visit.

This aquarium is simply overpriced. The Oceanario in Lisbon is way better and costs almost the same. Would not go back to sealife for sure.More

Been to several Sealife aquariums over the years and this one is pretty small and unspectacular, exhibits themselves are fine but an hour and you're pretty much done which given the price for a family ticket isn't great value.More
