Visionarium - Centro de Ciência do Europarque
Science and Knowledge
At Visionarium we are invited to enter a universe of emotions and experiences worthy of a scientific adventure. By making use of different and up-to-date technologies, we set out on a journey that that stimulates our senses and knowledge.
Our journey is set to begin with a multimedia show where we embark on the adventures of the Portuguese Navigators during the Discoveries. Like Henry, the Navigator, Vasco da Gama or Ferdinand Magellan, and using different technologies, we sail away on the discovery of 5 fantastic Odysseys related to the domains of the Earth, Matter, the Universe, Life and Information.
This adventure, however, doesn’t stop here. On both Experimentarios we engage in live demonstrations of the scientific principles displayed on the 5 permanent exhibition rooms. At Laboratorium, we are encouraged to engage actively in experiments on biology, microbiology, biochemistry, chemistry and ecology. On the Temporary Exhibitions’ Room, we can discover scientific views from all over the world.
We can also take a walk through the exterior gardens, dedicated to scientific games, where we can watch a watermill or step on a scalemodel of the solar system, 87 million times smaller than the actual one.
