The WORLD OF DISCOVERIES is an Interactive Museum and Theme Park that re-enacts the fantastic odyssey of the Portuguese navigators, crossing oceans to discover a previously unknown world.
The Discoveries propelled mankind into the era of globalisation and definitively changed our relationship with the planet.
Portugal played a leading role in this process for centuries, creating new maritime routes and circulating people, animals and plants all around the world.
Here you can learn about this incredible meeting of cultures and the ambition, ideas, endeavour and innovation that made it possible.
Take yourself on an adventure that changed the world, visiting our twenty permanent theme areas.
