The Madeira Aquarium, in the village of Porto Moniz, represents the various habitats of the Madeira marine world over the course of 12 tanks.
The Madeira Aquarium, located in Porto Moniz, next to the harbour, is an asset to the entertainment and cultural programme of Porto Moniz.

The Aquarium building was constructed in the old fort of Saint John the Baptist. The ruins of the fort were bought in 1998 by the Porto Moniz Municipal Council, which restored the fort to its original design, while its interior was adapted to its new function as an Aquarium.

The Madeira Aquarium is comprised of 12 exhibition tanks where the various habitats of the Madeira marine world are represented. The most impressive tank contains about 500,000 litres of salt water.
