  • Great fun museum with a lot of friendly staff. When visiting Monte Carlo, you have to jump in here to take a look for yourselves and i can guarantee you won't regret it. Very family friendly . A must visit!
  • Nice little museum, quite interesting as it is related to local situation and area.
  • Small, but free with garden admission. The cave (grotto) where these artifacts come from is the really cool part. Tours go there every hour on the hour. The museum itself has some pretty nice taxidermy and skeletons. Unlike US museums, they seem to have originals on display, which is neat.
  • Stunning view of the ocean. Small museum with 3 floors. There's a blue structure in the garden - Jean-Pascal Flavien's folding house.
  • Super Beautiful exotic garden with beautiful views. The most beautiful dripstone cave I've ever been to and a very interesting museum.
