Located just outside Lisbon, the Vasco da Gama Aquarium is also a museum, arising from a prince's dream and his ambition to learn about the depths of the ocean.

The Vasco da Gama Aquarium is one of the oldest museum aquariums in the world and has been visited by successive generations of families since its opening on May 20, 1898. 

It is a historical heritage site that promotes Portuguese aquatic life and displays King D. Carlos I's private Oceanographic Collection.
