Oceanographic Museum of Monaco, Monte-Carlo

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 really good museum to spend a number of hours on. the amount of species described is well detailed at each level. Marine animals / corals are indicated with correct Latin names. The aquarium section is one of the most well-kept I have seen to be so large, here it seems that those who work are dealing with the challenges required to keep a marine life going. simply thumbs up
  • Simply awesome. The building itself is a must go. The aquarium and the national history parts are amazing. If you are in Monaco, reserve around 3~4hours of a day and enjoy the visit!
