    A popular childhood memory to many Portuguese, Aquário Vasco da Gama is still a perfect place to spend an enjoyable family afternoon. The aquarium's interactive exhibits, such as feeding the fish, are fun for both young and old people alike. After enjoying the artificial lake, continue your tour inside, where you will find a diverse display of fish. You'll find colorful and ornate tropical species as well as other hidden wonders of the deep sea, such as seahorses. One of the most popular exhibits is that of the carnivorous piranhas. All these sights add up to a stunning walk through a sub-aquatic world. The aquarium also boasts of a giant dissected and preserved octopus, which is over 8m long and weighs 107 kilograms. Objects dating back to Portugal's great sea expeditions are also on display. This aquarium was opened to the public in 1898 by the King of Portugal D. Carlos.
