Digital interactive space dedicated to King D. Carlos I, the driving force behind the Vasco da Gama Aquarium.

Preserving the memory
Promoting knowledge

At bp, we believe that access to culture and education helps build a more inspired, responsible and sustainable society.

By supporting the Vasco da Gama Aquarium, we want to facilitate access to the museum`s historical and scientific heritage through an innovative digital experience, which will be available not only to visitors of this space, but also to the scientific and school communities and to the general public, through its online availability and universal access.

We also wish through this support to encourage knowledge of the sea and to bring people closer to this heritage that is so important to Portugal.
