  • 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.
