Museo do Mar de Galicia Vigo’s Museo do Mar traces the relationship between the locals and the sea, but the depiction of New World exploration and the museum's focus on concerns like conservation in fishing practices and ecology set it apart from other maritime museums. Built upon the shell of an old cannery, the stunning modern museum’s design incorporates the estuary, with galleries extending over the water and an aquarium that re-creates the Rías Baixas, the long narrow bays that break up the Galician coastline.
