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. To plan Monte-Carlo vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

An amazing time at the museum, lots of things to see and learn about. We spent the whole day there with kids 5 and 8 y.o. and they enjoyed all of it. The turtles exhibition is very interesting. Also don’t miss the chance to register for the Tactile experience, smart staff explains the marine life and kids have a great time. Restaurant on top is great with very reasonable prices. We feel that the management is doing a great job at ensuring we visitors have a great day and learn at the same time. Thanks for that.
I have visited this place 3 times in the last few years and I love it every time. Excellent attention to detail and informative signage in several languages. Just an amazing place to visit. Easy to spend an entire day here between the aquarium, museum and rooftop terrace. If you are at all considering a visit, stop debating it and just make it happen.
