There are lots of things to do with kids in Lisbon, and plenty of attractions to keep them occupied. Youngsters of all ages will love the sea life at the brilliant Oceanário de Lisboa, located at Parque das Nacões. The maritime is expanded upon in a different way by way of the Fragata D. Fernando II e Glória, a fantastic fully restored 19th-century wooden warship. Navigate your way across the River Tagus to get on board. Returning to the wildlife theme and the amazing Jardim Zoológico located in the city centre is an obvious place for a family day out. So too is the fascinating Pavilhão do Conhecimento-Ciênca Viva, where learning about physics and science is a totally fun experience. It’s situated back at Parque das Nacões, where the Telecabine cable car also operates – a great highlight for children! Lisbon’s most famous historic landmark is Castelo de São Jorge, and what child doesn’t like exploring a castle? Also in the city is the charming Museu da Marioneta. Here kids can learn about the history of puppetry, and even join a workshop. Another child-friendly museum is the Museu de Electricidade, where among the turbines and machinery is an incredible interactive learning space designed especially for inquisitive young minds. For a sightseeing trip with family appeal, book an excursion with Hippotrip. They use an amphibious custom-built vehicle to tour the city before driving it into the river! The other great novelty tour is by tram, and the Hills Tramcar Tour is the best for adults travelling with children.
