Oceanário de Lisboa

Pollution and overexploitation of natural resources were some of man’s actions that the founding fathers of EXPO’98 had in mind as they envisioned a large public aquarium. This aquarium was to maintain and perpetuate the message from Expo’98 while strongly supporting and contributing towards an enhancement of Portugal’s cultural and educational heritage.Oceanário de Lisboa was thus born, a giant public aquarium entirely dedicated to the oceans and their conservation.

The Oceanário celebrates life on Earth with a stunning display of living creatures, evoking the complexity of diversity inhabiting the Global Ocean and the vital role which it plays on the health and evolution of our Planet.
