Lisbon is a city with many attractions and highly recommended for families with children. However, museums are not the greatest of its attractions. Among them are the National Museum of Archeology and the Two Cars Museum.

But if we want to surprise children in Lisbon, two excellent options are the Oceanário and the Lisbon Zoo, both with a large number of animals.

With more than 15,000 animals of 450 different species, the Lisbon Oceanarium is the second largest aquarium in Europe, behind the L´Oceanogràfic in Valencia.

In its central aquarium, children will be amazed by sharks, rays, mantas and tropical fish, but all the oceanographic is worth it, starting with the building itself, which floats in the water and is accessed by a few catwalks.

The Oceanário is on Esplanada Don Carlos I of the Parque de las Naciones.
The oceanário's hours are from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. in summer and closing an hour earlier in winter.

Adults must pay 13 euros to enter the oceanarium, while retirees and children between 4 and 12 years old, only pay 9 euros.

One of the most visited museums in Lisbon is the one that houses a large and valuable collection of carriages dating from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.

The oldest vehicle in the museum is a carriage that belonged to Felipe III of Spain; one of the most visited along with the three Italian Baroque floats built in 1716 and belonging to Pope Clement XI.

The museum is small and contains real automotive gems. It is located near the Jerónimos Monastery in Praça Alfonso de Alburquerque, in Belém.

The museum's visiting hours are from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Closed on Mondays.

The entrance fee to the museum is 5 euros for adults, and 2.50 euros for young people between 15 and 25 years old. Children under 14 years old do not pay admission.

Egyptian mummies, gold objects, vessels and all kinds of archaeological pieces dating from the Paleolithic to the Middle Ages are exhibited in the most important archaeological collection in Portugal.

The museum is located in the same building as the Jerónimos Monastery in Praça do Império.

Visiting hours are from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Closed on Mondays.

On Sundays and holidays, between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm, admission is free. The rest of the week, admission is 5 euros for adults and 2.50 euros for over 65s. Children under 14 years old do not pay entry.

Dolphins, tigers, giraffes and hundreds of animals from all continents make up a very interesting zoo in the Bay of Lisbon.

Perhaps the most surprising thing is its cable car that allows you to see the animals from the air in a 20-minute trip that will surprise the smallest of the family.

The zoo is at Estrada de Benfica 158, Sete Rios.

Visiting hours are from 10:00 to 18:00 from October to April and from 10:00 to 20:00 from May to September.

Admission for adults costs 17 euros and for children from 3 to 11 years old: 12.50 euros.
