Description

Portugal is known for its pioneering maritime conquests during the 15th and 16th centuries, creating new seafaring routes and circulating people, animals, and plants all around the world. Hop aboard a ship and venture your way through the World of Discoveries on this vibrant sensory experience.

Follow in the footsteps of history's explorers and begin to understand how they navigated without modern technology and earned the nation's maritime might. Learn about what the Portuguese had to face and how they finally managed to enter the Indian Ocean in 1488, led by Vasco da Gama. Follow their journey with the help of 4D globes and hop on a replica of a 16th-century ship to understand a sailor's daily life.

Cruise to equatorial forests, India, Timor, China, Macao, Japan, and Brazil, recreating the odyssey of the discoveries. Travel through an interactive journey of textures, odors, mythology, and history—all merging into one incredible experience. Discover the fog screens and projections that transport you to different, fascinating eras of history.
