  • Aquarium and museum may not be unique in the world, but here you should really have been, when you have visited Monaco. Especially the skeletons of the great zeereuzen make an impression and every hour there is a short sound and light show. There is also a lot of attention to whaling.

  • A beautiful Museum, the Interior as the exterior architecture. Many activities are planned during the year. Do at least once.

  • The aquarium portion is dated. She has not been redone for more than 15 years. It's disappointing apart from the large central aquarium. On the other hand, the Museum part was redone with a beautiful scenery. And above all, he must go to the terrace to enjoy the magnificent view. It deserves a coffee more high-end.

  • Amazing day out for all the family, with a great range of discounted tickets for children, students, etc. There were a range of interesting exhibitions on the top two floors, and outstanding views from the rooftop terrace. Below, the aquarium was beautiful, with a great many different species of ocean critters on show. Most of the exhibits and tanks had information available on English, French and Italian, so still plenty to read and learn! The baby shark petting zoo was a particular highlight. Definitely worth a visit!
  • Most interesting museum in Monaco , and perhaps the entire Riviera. It is practically an aquarium with many tropical and Mediterranean fish. There is a small pool where children can touch a live shark. Especially suitable for children. On the top floor has a terrace overlooking Monaco and playground.
  • On of the most intereting museums. View is perfect around the building. The garden next to the muesum is beautiful looking down to the ocean from there is very nice. Streets around the museum are historical and very nice.
  • Super nice and interesting museum, awesome place to come with your family and friends. Hundreds of sea species.
  • A definitive must see during your visit in Monaco. Beautiful aquarium where Jacques Yves Cousteau was director.
