The Pavilion of Knowledge - Ciência Viva is located next to the central broad walk and the dock. It is made up fundamentally from a vertical volume - the ship which contains the vessels or fragments and which is the center off the exposition area - and from another horizontal block split by an access patio.
The horizontal block is virtually suspended, which allows the continuity of the public area between the broad walk and the dock.
The vertical volume and the suspended horizontal block cross each other like white concrete megaliths.
The access patio is square. It rises up to the entrance by a ramp which accompanies the periphery of the square. This patio and the ramps are lined with grit sandstone. The ground is covered in water. Some walls are covered in ivy.
Tuesday - Friday: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Weekends and bank holidays: 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Latest group admission: 4.30 p.m.
