Oceanographic Museum of Monaco, Monte-Carlo

4.3
Housed in an architecturally impressive building which teeters on a cliff edge looking out to sea, Oceanographic Museum of Monaco offers educational marine exhibits in an opulent setting. Home to the Mediterranean Science Commission, the museum provides exhibits that will delight young and old. Highlights include the shark lagoon with its 6 m (20 ft) glass walls, where you can see blacktip reef sharks, nurse sharks, sea turtles, and moray eels. Move through the museum to see the turtle island and the tactile pool, which gives kids a chance to touch the fauna and flora of the Mediterranean.

  • A beautiful Aquarium, not too many people or tails, a magnificent building above the sea. The Museum is nice too, not at all boring for the kids. Access to the turtles outside with view and terrace on the sea.

  • Great collection of sea creatures, astonishing fish tanks, fascinating stories of Ocean explorations by princes of Monaco. Museum is very interactive and kids friendly. Each hour light and music show. Main theme is marine life preservation and ecology, which I liked much. Good themed gift shop. Highly recommended.
  • We visited a few aquariums around the world (ex. Vancouver CA, Genoa IT, Bermuda, etc.) but this one is our favorite. Beautiful building, excellent expositions of amazing underwater world +interactive information in 3 languages. Interesting temporary exhibits. Recommend for adults and children all ages.
