Opened in 1998, the Oceanário was the centerpiece of the 20th Century’s last World Fair. The World Fair’s theme that year was “The Oceans, a Heritage for the Future”, and eternally binds Lisbon to the World’s Oceans.
The Oceanário’s mission is to promote knowledge of the oceans and to help the public understand about their duty of protecting this natural heritage, through changing their daily habits. While walking through impressive and unforgettable exhibits, visitors are encouraged to learn fascinating things about the oceans and, more importantly, how to make decisions in their daily lives that actively promote the conservation of nature.

It was our pleasure to visit this wonderful aquarium and explore its wonders. Please enjoy the photos we took and the video we made.
