Pavilhão do Conhecimento

Pavilhão do Conhecimento - Exterior

The Pavilion of Knowledge - Ciência Viva Science Centre is housed in a building first used during the EXPO´98. It was one of the most emblematic thematic pavilions - Pavilhão do Conhecimento dos Mares [The Pavilion of Knowledge of the Seas]. During the Lisbon International Exhibit inside the building, visitors made a journey of exploration across the oceans in its history, technical and human perspective. A boat from the São Jacinto shipyards was exhibited in the central nave. The architect Architect Carrilho da Graça won the Grand Jury Prize 1999 FAD, in Barcelona for his design of the building. The exhibit inside was one of the most visited attractions in EXPO'98, with over two and a half million visitors.

It reopened to the public as the Pavilion of Knowledge - Ciência Viva Science Centre on 25 July 1999 and aims to be, in addition to other spaces in Parque das Nações, a centre of interest, a pole of attraction and a qualified partner for the promotion of Science and Technology Education in the Portuguese society. Over the years, several emblematic figures have visited the Pavilion of Knowledge - Ciência Viva Science Centre, such as António Guterres, Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Gene Cernan, Heinz Fischer, Jorge Sampaio, José Sócrates and Manuel Paiva.
